l’esprit de l’escalier
[les-pree de less-kahyt-ee-yeh]
(noun) An untranslatable French word, which occurs after the dissatisfaction one experiences in, generally, an argument, unable to produce a “comeback.” L’esprit de l’escalier is the moment one finally thinks of a witty remark far too late, after the opportunity has passed. This is why the French call it the staircase wit, indicating that one thought of that perfect retort on his or her way out.
- literally: esprit (wit) + escalier (stairs) = staircase wit
