Vagáry. n.s. [from vagus, Latin.] A wild freak; a capricious frolick.
They chang'd their minds,
Flew off, and into strange vagaries fell,
As they wou'd dance. Milton's Par. Lost, b. vi. l. 613.
Would your son engage is some frolic, or take a vagary, were it not better he should do it with, than without your knowledge? Locke on Education, §97.
