  • [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."

Bird, did you miss the part about *free* tickets? Plus, I'm pretty fair weather when it comes to professional sports, I'm just happy to support a home team. Go team, go! Marietta, on the other hand, she's a fan. She recited the entire line up on the car ride to the game.

I'm jealous! I had school this weekend.
