Hola, ¿cuál sería un equivalente en español a esta frase? Se suele decir cuando alguien hace una promesa. Soy español y no se me ocurre ninguna así que pregunto por si alguien sabe de alguna.

    I've heard "que me caiga muerto," but it's not a rhyme as in English. This phrase is mostly used by children, who always draw an X over their hearts when saying it. Adults rarely use it, except jocularly.

    Well, there isn't a corresponding translation for every little rhyme in a language. We have nothing in English equivalent to "sale vale" or "¿Qué te pasa, calabaza?," for example.
