If you will...

That's *another* term I don't hear enough of. "Let's take the cat, or the feline, if you will..."

No, I won't.

I mean it's such a STUPID expression! Why do we bother saying it? Are we going to retract the phrase if the person answers with "No, I won't."?

I think if we cut out such phrases from our speech, we'd probably save a lot of time and energy.

but then we wouldn't have any phrases to use for stalling purposes or backhanded compliments, etc.
