  • [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."

Darn you Meg!! :)

I don't mind school, it's just these pesky final projects! The grass is TOTALLY greener, let me tell you. Right now, though, I would be happy with green grass of any kind. No more snow! Down with snow! (Oh god, I think I'm ranting again...)
