Thanks for swinging by, family and friends (oh. and you). Most of you know that, in conversation, I oscillate between daft and bombastic. Hence the title: L'esprit d'escalier is a French expression that literally means "the spirit of the stairway." The spirit of the stairway is that which grabs you on the way out and tells you what you should have said when you were in that apartment (or 'flat', to be ethnologically consistent....).

Since I'm on a first name basis with l'esprit, I figured it would make an apt title. Visit early and often. So it is written, so shall it be done.
