Word of the Week – L’esprit de l’escalier – French

Yes, I know I haven’t had a WOTW for a couple of weeks… but this week I’ve actually remembered. Our phrase is nice and poetic – and it’s French so it sounds classy. L’esprit de l’escalier is a phrase used when you think of something perfect to say in a situation, just too late. You might be having an argument, and later you think of the perfect comeback (but sadly, the moment has passed).

    Thank you for liking my post and leading me here. Haha, these WOTW are funny! When will you have something in Finnish language? Any plans on traveling in or posting about Nordic countries – as unlike it seems, we are also part of Europe up here!
