Can I use the expression "for some impulse" similar to "for some reason"? It doesn't sound right. How to use "impulse" correctly, when I want to mention the urge and not the reason? I saw online the expression "on an impulse", does "an" mean the same as if it was "some [kind of]"? Or should I use "on some impulse"?
Google search for "for some impulse" give expressions where either a comma is inside or a noun follows (or at least the first dozen or so and I stopped checking more) so it is not what I seek for, I guess it is incorrect. Searching for "on an impulse" and "on some impulse" give meaningful results, and I guess "on some impulse" that would be correct - as an example, any sentence that contains "for some reason" does it, like:
I've never thought about it, but for some reason I bought a rocketship today.
I believe it should be like this when mentioning the urge:
I've never thought about it, but on some impulse I bought a rocketship today.
