Gagging on the edge of puking without actual vomit.

Accompanied by a disgusting sound.
Did you see Pacey Tracey stick her fingers down her throat so she would dry heave? How do you not know how to burp at 24

sounds of pre-vomit convulsions that display that the puking object is ready and we can go with the mass

what happens when you drink and smoke pot on an empty stomach, causing you to try to throw up. However throwing up is painful and you usally can't puke up much at all
Me: holy shit I gotta throw up **over toliet**
*gagging noise*
*no sound of puke hitting water*

You: You're dry heaving like a bitch aren't ya?
