  • [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."

Claire, I blame you for my current etsy.com addition; you are the one who introduced me to all of this handcrafted wonderfulness last year... and I'm never going back!! :)

Excellent choices, by the by!
