Does anyone know the French translation of the quote 'I just threw in my mouth a little bit' ?
Regards at all of you.

  • I've forgot UP after threw !!
    Sorry.
  • Look at this short dialog held in a couple.


    He: You seem to have the hiccups, honey.
    She: No darling. I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.
    He: Do you mean, honey, that you threw up a little bit in your mouth?
    She: That's it, darling.
    He: Take a pill of antiemic, honey. I wouldn't like your nice-tasting mouth be sullied when we have a French kiss.


    Let's suppose the couple is French.


    Lui: On dirait que tu as le hoquet, ma chérie.
    Elle: Non, mon amour. J'ai seulement régurgité dans ma bouche un tout petit peu.
    Lui: Veux-tu dire que tu as remis un tout petit peu dans ta bouche?
    Elle: C'est çà, chéri.
    Lui: Prends un comprimé d'antiémétique, ma chérie. Je ne voudrais pas que l'agréable saveur de ta bouche soit souillée quand on va s'embrasser profondément.


    Let's suppose the couple is Afghan.


    Guess!
  • 'to throw up a little bit in one's mouth' has become
    a locution for being disgusted by something.


    If something is so repulsive that you get naueated by it, you may say "It makes me throw up a little bit in my mouth". That is, you have a feeling like the food in your stomach wants to come up


    For the German folks: "Das kommt's mir hoch"
  • ... And for French natives (in slang, or in a crude version) : "ça me remonte" ou "ça me débecte"...
    But what are we doing now ? I believed we were trying to speak... Gymglish !
  • Oh, my good, JoggerOne, please stay calm. Getting annoyed rises the risk of a heart attack. But you can do something about it: progressive muscle relaxation, yoga, exercising - or jogging. Are you not a 'jogger one', by the way?


    I'm glad you didn't use two or more exclamations marks. Hence, your ire can't be that terrible and devastating to you health.
