  • [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."

Wow. A smart person who blogs. I'm impressed. I graduate from Ohio State although I never went to a single football game. I don't how intellectual I am either, but I do have my own blog and have been told it's pretty good. Keep going, I like your thought process. Found you on Kathleen Maher's list.
