  • [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."

That is one GREAT shot, Claire! Hurray for you for getting that.

Holy crap, Claire! That photo is AWESOME! I'm glad you had the cat safely tucked away.

We're on the border of ice and rain so it goes from being treacherous to just blecky. Everyone's walking around like they're 90.

Wow! That's awesome.

Cookies?!!
