Don’t run around the bush

This beauty is a mix – up of “don’t beat around the bush”  and “don’t give me the run around” , both idioms meaning don’t be so evasive.  Because the meanings are very similar, the malaphor is a common one.  I have heard it 4 or 5 times over the years.   In fact, this one is so subtle that you might miss it when it is uttered.
