  • [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."

You've been missed, Claire, but the trip sounds wonderful.

Safe travels, Claire! Glad to hear what a great time you're having. Can't wait to hear more.

Welcome home, Claire. Glad you enjoyed your trip. Thinking about it makes me homesick for a life I've never had.
