  • [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."

Aw! Happy Birthday, Frank -- You photogenic Flickr superstar, you!

I can't believe he's four already! I remember when you got him. He's still freaking adorable, though. :)

Happy birthday Frankie!

He's such a sweet cat. I think Frankie "Pickles" Parnassus works since he's getting roughed up by those hill cats. Generally speaking, it's unwise to mess with a nicknamed man. Unless that nickname is "glass jaw."

Happy birthday, Monseigneur Frank!

Thank you ladies! Frank sends his love! Purrs and kisses to you all.
