Has anyone heard: Borrowing no mishaps / Barring no mishaps. Which one is the original? My grandma says it's the second one, but that one doesn't make sense. Context example: "I will visit you at Christmas, barring / borrowing no mishaps." "I graduate in June, barring / borrowing no mishaps." Etc. Does anyone have any information?
