    Question "to drift off into a funk"

    Hello,

    what is the meaning of "drift off into a funk" in the following sentence:

    "Standing in a long line at the supermaket? Don't drift off into a funk. Instead form a mental snap shot of the people in the adjoining line."
    Thank you.

    Re: "to drift off into a funk"

    Ever stare into space when you are bored? That's easy to do when standing in line at the grocery store. I think that's what is meant here.

    Being "in a funk" is an espression used to describe someone close to depression, so I am not familiar with "drifting off into a funk," although I suppose it could be used.


    Where's Mary?
    She's not coming. She's in a funk about breaking up with her boyfriend.
