au pif

The phrase for today is au pif.  It means by chance, at a guess, par hasard. The word pif is slang for nose so it literally implies you are following your nose.
  • Il n'y a aucune garantie de succès - il faut aller au pif en croisant les doigts.
There is no guarantee of success - you must follow your instinct and cross your fingers.
