They say that they've thrown up.

Or vomited.

To be fair, though, they could use sick for both. "That was sick" is pretty distinguishable from "I've been sick."

Vomit, puke or just...sick. Words can have different meanings depending on context.

It seems many of our youth have a good grasp of the use of homonyms.

Never come across a homonym before, OP?
