    Default Foam

    Hello.

    Can I use this word as "I'm foaming. Don't touch me!" or it sounds strange and unnatural?
    I ask this question, because a friend of mine said it and I was confused. Then I started to think about his dog.

    Thanks in advance,
    Boris.

    No, you can't say that; and I expect what your friend said was that s/he was fuming (very angry).

    People don't foam unless it is at the mouth.
