  • [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."

I've been there! With you, even! :)

And, it was GREAT seeing you and Mama Jennings! We really miss you in Chicago!

One of these days me and Manny are going to make the trip when our relatives are conveniently out of town. It's the only way, I'm afraid. I went to Chicago in June and saw the inside of restaurants and cars.
