While we're still on the question of heights.
Exactly a year ago while walking around in Paris at night, I spotted this model and commented; Oh those trecherous, unending circular staircases in Paris! I'll take a mini model instead S.V.P

L'esprit d'escalier (literally, stairway wit) that describes the predicament of thinking of the right thing to say too late.

Sardi, who lives in a Soho loft and climbs 5 steep stairs everyday, suggested I bring along an artist's folding stool - I could take timeout on the landings on the way up.
Of course Susanne says not to worry.
