“People in France have a phrase: ‘staircase wit.’ In French: L’esprit de l’escalier. It means that moment you find the answer,it’s too late. Its the riposte to an insult or any witty remark that comes to the mind WAY too late to be useful. The moment you leave the venue of the occasion… as you start down the stairway — magic. The fierce, tough, can-tear you-apart remark comes to your head- the perfect thing you should’ve said. The perfect crippling put-down.
That’s the spirit of the stairway.
