When something bad (usually near death experiences) happens because you are doing something you shouldn't be doing.
Man, I had about twenty close calls this past year because I have been smoking all this time. A person like me was never supposed to smoke in the first place. WTF!!!!!

When something almost happens. Especially something bad, like a collision or social mishap.
Jerry experienced a close call when he was sailing on his boat and a strong gale knocked down his mast and missed his head by a hair.

That moment when you're pulling your pants down and sitting on a toilet at the same time, and your shit starts.
Guy 1: man that was a close call, I wasn't even fully on the toilet.

Guy 2: did you make a mess?

Guy 1: a little bit, but at least we're in MacDonald's.
