To move in a misdirected yet very purposeful manner, usually making
a big scene and calling
lots of attention to oneself in the process. It can be wandering
aimlessly or striding very purposefully
toward someone/something but with lots of distractions along
the way and always completely ignorant of everything going
In short, a sort of all-over-the-place reckless abandon where you're either totally focused on something, or not focused on anything
at all, but completely ignoring
you as you knock into
things, walk this way and that as if you forgot where you wanted to go next, and in general making
a complete spectacle of yourself.
