My Photo

Definition

  • [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."

Have fun in Chicago!

Have a good weekend, Claire!

I love the last photo. It should be the one he uses as his author photo when he writes his memoirs.

Is that Frank? What a handsome cat he's grown to be.

Too cute! I've got a similar photo of my dog sniffing noses with a black and white cat, who was fearless. Must be something in the genetic makeup.

Is he a tab or a tux? We have two tuxedoes and I swear they have the most mellow personalities ever.
