English term or phrase: \"Frankly, coming back to this house is giving me the willy-squidgets.\"
L' ex marito torna a casa e trova una situazione imbarazzante in cui la ex moglie è a cena con un altro uomo e unl'altra coppia. Fa finta che tutto vada bene, saluta il cane e poi decide di andare verso la porta. Uscendo, dice questa frase a cui segue una risata. Qualche idea sulla traduzione? Grazie

Explanation:
if willies was used on its own then I would have preferred to translate as "i brividi", but squidget is more slang for detestabile, hence my choice of translation.

Thanks for your suggestion. Unfortunately, it's not very appropriate to the context. Maybe I didn't explain it very well.
