    1.He had a.......of coughing.
    2.How can I work....you dusting all over me like this?
    3.This money won't make ....for my family.

    You can have a FIT or SPELL of coughing.

    It's hard to work WITH someone doing something distracting - is that what "dusting" means?

    When something doesn't make UP for something else, it's not compensation enough. (Getting paid overtime doesn't make up for having to miss your son's football match.)
