1)This is from Ray Bradbury in his book "Something Wicked This Way Comes"
(A mysterious carnival train is coming, they start hearing a calliope)
"That is church music. Changed"
"For cri-yi. I'm froze, let's go wathc them set up." :shock:
2) Does "scissors and elbows" exist? Could it mean for instance in the case of close friends doing everything together?
And my last questions is in the same novel there is this expression:
A mother says to her child: "You'll live and get hurt, but when it's time, tell me. Say goodbye. Otherwise, I might not let you go. Wouldn't that be terrible, to just grab ahold?
Thanks a lot in advance. :)

Grab ahold just means grab. I'm sorry but I'm not familiar with the other two.;-)
