Going with the flow

“Where you off to?” I asked Barkley.

“I dunno,” he shrugged. “I got nowhere special to be so I thought I’d just go with the flow and see where I wind up.”

That was SO Barkley. I’ve never known anyone who put less stock in making plans, and yet things always seemed to work out for him. At least I’d never seen him hurting for anything.

While I admit that I like a bit more structure than my aimless drifter buddy, truth be told, I have no more control over my existence than he does.

“Why’s that?” you ask.

We’re plankton.

Prompt: Trillions
