Afterism (n) - A concise, clever statement you don't think of until it's too late.

‘Hi there’ he said.
BOOM. Two simple words started a furious explosion that rippled throughout my body. BOOM ba BOOM. The drum pace quickened and my thoughts collided in an intricate dance, too complicated to decipher. Melodic syllables sweep past my ears, the cadence harmonious to my brainwaves. I scramble for the words that will capture the intensity of the moment. How difficult would it be to profess that his contagious smile lifts the room; or that his eyes radiate warmth? Would it be so incongruous to point out the ambrosial aroma, which he emits with every raspy breath?
‘Hello’ I replied gingerly. Ah well, maybe next time.
