Blanco y en botella

Clear as day

Cuando decimos en español "blanco y en botella" en inglés se dice "clear as day". En este caso cuando decimos clear quiere decir despejado (como un día de sol).

Realmente aquí es cuando uno se da cuenta de la riqueza del español. Si nos paramos a pensar un momento la cantidad de frases que significan lo mismo, no llego a ver el final, "cristalino", "de cajón", etc. Os invito a enriquecer este post y que aportemos entre todos nuestro granito de arena.

¿Seremos capaces de llegar a las 15 frases con el mismo significado? Estoy seguro de que sí.

¿Quién se apunta?, seguro que tú sabes alguno.

Es más..., os propongo lo siguiente. De todas las frases recibidas (que tengan que ver con este post) sortearemos un pen drive en forma de llave de SeproTec. El 11 de abril a las 12,00h será el sorteo.

¡Suerte!

Blanco y en botella, leche

If you are not a native speaker you may wonder what this phrase is talking about, but to any Spaniard this is as “clear as day.”  That’s actually what it means. The saying describes something that is white and in a bottle… and the phrase ends declaring it has to be milk, because it is obvious that it couldn’t  be anything else! …now you know!

Another similar expression in Spanish says “de cajón” literal translations meaning from a drawer-which means something is also very obvious.

In fact, there are so many different expressions and ways to say something is obvious that we are going to give you a challenge, all the people who provide a version of this saying in English or Spanish will be entered into a drawing to win a USB (pen drive)! The drawing will be held on April 11th!

Leave your version and check your email April 11th, you may be the winner!

Good Luck!
