  • [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."

Happy Birthday, Frank!!!

I forgot what a little morsel he was! He's such a handsome cat now, but back then, he was a mere puff of sweetness.

Are you going to get him a cake that looks like a chipmunk?!

It's been a year already?

veda and ella want to wish frank a wonderful and flea-free birthday.

Frank Frank! Oh happy birthday! He was a Friday the 13th baby, this I remember. God - he was so little that I remember we briefly contemplated putting him in a hampster ball so that he could easily be found. I was so afraid I would step on him. And then I did! I punted him across the room. All I could hear was the sound of tiny claws trying to find traction. So then I screamed, and this freaked him out and he jumped. He may or may not have pissed himself.

Oh how handsome he is now. I am VERY excited for my visit to Ohio. I will bring treats for both of you :)

Ghaaa - I just watched the video again. Too.cute.Fluffy.kitty.string....AHHHHHHH!

Still enjoying his blankie?

Aww, happy birthday to Frank! Aren't kitties the greatest? Even my boyfriend can't argue when I claim mine is my best friend in the world.

Holy Cow... I mean Holy cats... kittens are just too cute for words.

Thanks everyone! He appreciates the love! :)

Time flies...Frank is so adorable--such a big boy! Happy belated birthday!!
