Don’t let the bean out of the bag

This strange expression is a mash up of  “cat out of the bag” and “spill the beans”, both meaning to give away a secret or surprise.   The speaker may also have been thinking of bean bags.   Who didn’t have a bean bag chair adorning their living room in the 70s and 80s?  Mine was a beautiful pukish brown with a corduroy cover – stylish.    Thanks to Cathy Miller for this one!
