    It is touch and go

    I looked it up in dictionary. It means "risky or critical". But What is the structure to use it? Because I didn't find the example
    It's touch and go + to do something
    or
    It's touch and go doing something
    or what else?

    Hi Kimhaze,

    I had never heard this expression before, but I have found one example of its use. Follow the link.

    touch-and-go - Wiktionary

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to receiving more expert info on this one too.

    Greetings,

    Re: It is touch and go

    Rob had a heart attack, at work and was rushed to hospital. It was touch and go for a couple of hours, but he pulled through.

    There was a strong possibility that he might not live.
