6-IT'S SIX OF ONE...: meaning and examples

Good morning.

Today we continue our countdown (cuenta atrás) to our 1000th (one thousandth) Daily Vitamin.

Today's idiomatic expression is: It's six of one and half a dozen of the other

Meaning: used to say that there is not much real difference between two possible choices.

Example 1:
I compared the two cars that I'm thinking about buying, and in most respects it's six of one and half a dozen of the other.

Example 2:
I say she's a stewardess, but she says she's a flight attendant. It's six of one and half a dozen of the other.

If you have any questions about today's Daily Vitamin, please post them in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website (

I hope you have a nice day!
