l’esprit de escalier

This word should exist in the English language because it happens to me constantly.  constantly.  I mean so much that I have lost countless opportunities and have no idea how things would have turned out had I thought of things sooner.



  1. so i didn't know what this meant so I looked it up on Google and one site said the french called it staircase wit. which i thought was weird. ahh the french...

  2. it's my favorite french phrase, well it's the only french phrase that i know. it basically means that you missed the opportunity to say something or that you thought of a witty come back way too late.
