  • [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."

« My third presidential election as a voter | Main | I had a horrifying realization today »

That was just really, really great.

Even though I've been getting nutty emails from my Republican friends saying that Obama's going *destroy* America, I am still so extremely happy and hopeful for what we can do over the next four to eight years.

And I'm happy to be feeling hopeful instead of feeling hatred towards the monsters. Be gone with those monsters!

Claire- I actually had tickets to Grant Park, but other things kept me away. I still felt all of the hope and glee spilling off of the TV screen! I am also happy to be feeling hopeful and join in with a rousing, "Be GONE with those monsters!"

amen, indeed.
