    .
    1-- Just make a quick/wild/uninformed guess at the answer
    2-- You psychologically withdrew from the current situation; you became introspective (maybe)
    3-- give permission to do something
    4-- trivial/unconsidered/silly talk
    5-- saved just in time (the reference is to a boxer who is knocked down but does not lose to a 10-count because the bell sounds for the end of the timed round)
    6-- (pretend to) ignore; intentionally ignore
    7-- it will be (minimally) sufficient for the purpose
    8-- it will be (minimally) sufficient for the purpose
