  • [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."

Oh my heavens, such a rich blog entry with many things to comment on. First, Congrats on graduating!! Second, that squirrel site is really nuts! I had missed your weird squirrel story. I loved it! And, I disagree with the black squirrel theories!

Glad school is over for you! I will send you a gift soon--you deserve something nice!

I love that you are back online! YAY! :)

Very excited for next year-- hopefully we'll both be in DC! :)

Enjoy your "Summer of Claire"! :)
