She drifted through the day talking and...

Which is the meaning of "drift", please?
It means simply "live" or it also contains a shade of superficial?

Thank you.

    Yes, "superficial" is probably a good description, David. This sentence means that she was bored and had nothing to do with herself and the day just languidly passed.
