Your Guess is as Good as Mine

Saturday, September 11, 2010

This is an idiom that I don’t use simply because I didn’t know what it means. I would hear and read it but never tried to ask or research about it.

Well, that was until the other day when I finally decided to look it up. I got curious when a local celebrity tweeted something like “Confirmed! And your guess is as good as mine!” And then someone replied that the statement is kind of contradictory. I found out why:

Your guess is as good as mine = I DO NOT KNOW.

Oh well, that figures. :)
