When asked what dessert was like, Goldblum simply pauses, wide-eyed, in reverie.
Often the reverie rolled on deep into the night, an unflagging, unredundant product of the raconteurial mind.
Allow me to restrict this reverie to foreign-policy books, which I know more about than the other kinds.
mid-14c., reuerye, "wild conduct, frolic," from Old French reverie, resverie "revelry, raving, delirium" (Modern French rêverie), from resver "to dream, wander, rave" (12c., Modern French rêver), of uncertain origin (also the root of rave). Meaning "daydream" is first attested 1650s, a reborrowing from French. As a type of musical composition, it is attested from 1880. Related: Reverist.
