‘Physically unhurt. Emotionally fucked to the sky, but you can psychoanalyze me later.’ Van made a vast watery honking sound, blowing her nose on something. ‘There’s more.’
Source: Sleeping Beauties by Stephen & Owen King
Context: Correctional Service for Women Officer Lampley recounted to Dr Norcross about the shooting accident and how she felt.


What is a watery sound? Just weak?

Thank you.

    No - a sound that associated with watery mucus being expelled from her nostrils - it tells you after the comma: "Van made a vast watery honking sound, blowing her nose on something."
