  • [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 had the bookmark on the left! I, too, was obsessed with unicorns. I collected them for ages. I've gotten rid of all but one, tiny unicorn- just to remind myself that there still is magic in the world, even if I'm old now. :)

I definitely had at least one of those, too. I used to get them from the book fair!

The Eldest Lamblet was obsessed with them as well, and although not as much, the love is still there.

Amy and Amanda - I love that you had the same bookmarks! God bless the Scholastic book fairs of our youths!

Jennifer, I'm glad to hear the Eldest Lamblet and I share our young love for unicorns. Tell her I say hi.
