A Toss Up

Meaning: The result or end of a situation is unclear or undecided.

Use:  My friend is really unreliable. He often promises to do things for me and then he forgets. He told me he would pick me up at 5 tonight, but whether he will or not is a toss up.

In other words, the author doesn’t know if his friend will come or not.
