watery sting in their eye

< Previous | Next >


One guy persuades another that they should go to the toilet at the airport, before the flight. He explains why:
— The toilets in coach are barely ventilated closets, all right, if that. Now, let's say halfway through the flight, right, your body wants that airplane food out. You gotta go torque a wicked cable, and then right after you... like directly after you, walks in Christa or Blake [the girls they like]. Do you want them to associate you with that watery sting in their eye. That reflexive gag at the back of their throat?
Final Destination, movie

What does "watery" mean here?
Thank you.
