    .
    1-- suffer continued disasters: my dog died, and then my wife came back.
    2-- an auctioneer's phrase for notice of a final bid and sale of an item. 'First call for another bid, second call for another bid, sold. No more bids accepted.'
    3-- I was mobile and socializing (a rather vague idiom which could be used for a sick person no longer bedridden, or a socialite at large).
    4-- I don't know what he was talking loudly and at length about (complaining/proselytizing/extolling/etc.)
    5-- You pay the bill.
