    Re: reaction to eating cucumbers

    You already have it! There is nothing wrong with "That cucumber's repeating on me".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: reaction to eating cucumbers

    The cucumbers are coming back up. (Context will clarify you don't mean vomiting.)
    The cukes are coming back.
    I'm tasting those cucumbers again.
    I'm still tasting those cucumbers.


    The line about 'repeating on me' isn't used in AmE, as far as I know. You will hear the line about 'burping cucumbers' in AmE.

    I wouldn't have had a clue what it meant before seeing it here.
