My funny ESL (2)

One day at the office we were about to attend a meeting.

I was asking my colleague to avoid discussing about a particular topic, or else  problems might ensue.

There are 2 popular expressions in English to cover this situation. One involves hornets and one worms.

hornets-nest“Let’s not open that can of worms!’

“You’ll stir up a hornet’s nest!”

With these 2 idioms in mind, I said:
“Let’s not stir the can of worms!”
