Comment of Jamal Rudolph Levarity 000064182:
Mrs. Gennevie McKenzie, age 63. Mrs. McKenzie is from New Providence, Bahamas. In her view, an "ager" is a phrase used when a person is about to vomit as a result of bad news. For example, " we almost had the ager when we found out that our mother had died."
