Second thoughts...

by Guy Pothier
Second thoughts...

L’esprit de l’escalier is one of my favourite French expressions. It means thinking up a killer or knockout response to an argument only after you have left the encounter where the argument took place. I sometimes experience this after leaving stimulating discussions among the wits at my two principal clubs in Halifax: the Officers’ Mess at RA Park and the Resolutes on Inglis Street.
