L’esprit de l’escalier (French)

  1. I’m pretty good if I do say so myself, but I’ve a friend who quite literally contacts me hours later with what he should have said! Even though I say I’m quite good, I’m slow as a wet week compared to my brothers and one of my sisters.
    I love…’and it was so good too’

  2. If only I could pronounce French as well as my Spanish. . . 🙂
    This reminds me of how one minute after hanging up with a longtime friend, I think of something else to “add to our conversation!” 😀
