Somnotigate~ to entertain oneself by imagining impossible situations into which one might be thrust

PROMPT: Fernweh

Somnotigate: (verb) to entertain oneself by imagining impossible situations into which one might be thrust.

Derived from the Latin somniatis, dream, and cogitare, to think.

Example: Elle was so bored in class that she began to somnotigate about what she would do if ninjas suddenly burst into the room and threw her teacher out of the window.
