My Photo


  • [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."

Pretty photo, Claire. I love pears. Pears to eat. Pears in art. Pears paired with other pears.

The Skimmer did a huge oil painting of a pear for me a few years back. Maybe I'll re-post it and link to your pear post.

Then there'll be a pair of pear posts in the blogosphere.


I might steal that line right there for my post. Try not to get bored by it!


Mmmmmm... I was thinkin' "banana" this morning. NOW I gotta go shoppin' for pears.

Quite nice!
