Circuitous — This is the word that got me interested in posting a word of the week. I used it several years ago with my friend and co-worker Dan, who was immediately intrigued by it.

cir·cu·i·tous \sir-KYOO-eh-tus\
adjective
1 : having a circular or winding course <a circuitous route>
2 : not being forthright or direct in language or action <a circuitous explanation>

For more, see the complete entry at Merriam-Webster online.
