  • [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."

I love the new look Claire! Your apt. now has the potential to be transformed into a very classy yet comfortable lair. Next time I come for a visit I'm bringing a cool poster to accent your lovely family room.

Yes Claire, it looks pretty spiffy. And yes - I'm way more excited for you to be getting the couch than Al. We can "discuss" the art at a later date...
