  • [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."

Man, I have so had days like that.

I keep my bean pola that you sent me in my car - it travels with me everywhere. Dunno why, just like it that way.

Can't wait to see/meet you!
