  • [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."

That is a fabulous song! I in fact remember my own (possibly drink-ehanced) karaoke experience with this song except it may have involved me co-opting some stranger's rendition of it by trying to add some harmony. If I recall, she was not amused. Oops. But when the song moves you...!

I am a HUGE Gladys Knight fan. Huge. I love her voice so much.

Midnight Train to Georgia is a great song as is You're the Best Thing that Ever Happened to Me. Neither One of Us (Wants to be the First to Say Goodbye) is another awesome song. So sad! One of those sad songs that I could just wallow in for hours on end.

And yes, I did hear a good song today on my way to get a haircut. Heard Blue Sky by the Allman Brothers. Do you know it?

You're my blue sky
You're my sunny day
Lord you know
It makes me high
When you turn your love my way
Turn your love my way, yeah

Turned down a couple of side streets to drag out my drive a bit so I could hear the whole song. :)
