to mesmerize, -ized, -izing

to mesmerize, – ized, -izing
v 1. To be in a deep daydream, or specifically, 2. To overthink the past events that may (or may not) have had a profound effect on one’s personal experiences or beliefs.
ex – Ms. Moneypenny was mesmerizing about mr. Bond.

Origin: The actual meaning of the word is described as ‘to hypnotize’, or the ‘state of being under a heavy spell’. I’m pretty sure, I’ve always used ‘mesmerizing’ in the context as explained above. In a way, I truly think mesmerizing should mean what is described under ‘2’, above. Maybe this may happen in another 20 years.
