In My Head

Molly:  *telling Butch about the video they watched in health class, during which a doctor removed a live heart, before which the teacher warned them that it would be icky and told them they could put their heads down if they didn't want to watch*

Butch:  So did you watch it?

Molly:  Yes. And then I said this sentence in my head: "I think I'm going to throw up."
