  • [es-pree de less-ka/-iay] (idiom) A witty remark that occurs to you too late, literally on the way down the stairs. The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations defines esprit de l'escalier as, "An untranslatable phrase, the meaning of which is that one only thinks on one's way downstairs of the smart retort one might have made in the drawing room."

Ah-ha! I do read your blog from time to time. However, Mom did tell me to read it today since you mentioned me. I am sure the scarf is beautiful, the picture is to dark for me to really tell. Call me when you get a chance, I have to tell you about my fun weekend involving helecoptor rides and skeet shooting! Love, Alix
