  • [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."

Viva la Revolucion!

"Is it a rebellion?" asked Louis XVI of the count who informed him of the fall of the Bastille.

"No, sire," came the reply. "It is a revolution.

And we should all head to Columbus!"

Sorry, I'm being silly.

A part of your post has inspired me to write a post Clair. Let me see if I can get to it now.

Sorry about that sans "e" sitch, Claire.

I love rambling posts. :)

Yes, you will be busy and blogging may be light, except for Wednesday nights!

I won't make this a rambling comment.

I always love your photos.

Claire, are you getting ready for the annual RoD bake-off?!!!
