Esprit de L'Escalier (noun)
esprit de l'escalier [ es-pree duh le-skahl-yey ]


noun French
1. a perfect comeback or witty remark that one frustratingly comes up with only when the moment for doing so has passed: Writers, by nature, tend to be people in whom l' esprit de l'escalier is a recurrent experience.


Origin: First recorded in 1905–10; literally, “wit of the staircase” (i.e., after one has left the gathering)

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

My apologies for a belated passing of the baton -- for some reason, I got this weekend and next weekend backwards!

15 sigtag bases, hastily-made, after recovering from Stranger Things 3.

Anyway, shinysylver, I hope you had luck, today!
