Cosette, the child heroine of Victor Hugo's Les Miserables, not to be confused with causette...French for chat.

faire la causette:  to have a chat
causer:  to cause; to chat, to talk

Today's vocabulary brings to mind the rather extended and funny French film title, Elle Bois Pas, Elle Fume Pas, Elle Drague Pas, Mais...Elle Cause, which translates to She Doesn't Drink, She Doesn't Smoke, She Doesn't Flirt, But...She Chatters.
