  • [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."

Thank you for the links, Claire. And as you know, I think your email was very inspiring. I'm glad you posted it.

It's true. We need to do all we can do for this next election. Watson's given me some ideas. Now I just gotta get 'em posted!

A little upfront research work first, though. Which slows down the *swooping* process, as Mannion likes to say.

But, I'll do it!

Great post!

Very nice post, Claire. I'm pretty sure the current administration is reading your blog, right? RIGHT??? I feel much better knowing that when they do, they'll see the mistakes of their ways. It must have only been a braincramp...

Thanks again for the words of wisdom.

Lovely post, indeed!

Well done.

Thanks ladies. Had I had a blog back thing, you know it would have been a post back in 2004.
