  • [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 agree. i miss sprawling thanksgivings too. i think i'm ok with this year's orphan thanksgiving (frankly think i need it, especially know that i have to work later this week) but i certainly wouldn't want to make a habit of doing thanksgiving solo.
