  • [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've been in a *blah* mood today and you picked me up, Claire!

I have a gift certificate that's just been waiting to be spent. I think I'll do a little surfing.

Thanks for the pick me up.

Oh good! I'm glad to hear that.

(Was it the camel? Did he pick you up? He can get very fresh.)

Happy shopping!
