The protagonist is a cartoonist and just sold his first graphic novel.
His estranged wife, Sharon is an elementary school teacher.

He had bought his estranged wife a present; he would stop at Comix Supreme on the way home and by his son the new issue of Spider-Man; he might as well treat himself, as well. He was bursting to tell Sharon his news, bhe'd be be ouut st of reach until she got home, there forty-five or so.
<From "CELL" by Stephen King>

I'd like to know what "burst" means here.
Thank you in advance for your help.
