Be In A Dream


Spanish, Spain
Hey all,

This question is especially to American speakers. How would you say in American English this British expression, "be in a dream"? This would be the context:

Sorry, can you repeat that? I didn't hear what you have just said - I was in a dream.

Thanks in advance,

    In Australia (even though I know you didn't ask) :

    - I was in La La Land/I was lost in la la land/I was off in la la land
    - I was daydreaming
    - I was off with the fairies
    - I was off in my own world
    - the mind went walkabout, you know?
