  • [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."

yes, i am smitten too. I saw them perform at a music fest last year without knowing anything about them. What a nice surprise! I'd like to sit and listen to their music right now with some hot chocolate looking out the window. But (sigh) no such luck...

Oh am I envious. I badly want to see them live.
