Do you know the way to spell sachet?

It has been quite the day. Please excuse me while I haul my chassis up to the chalet.

Sachets are small fragrant bags of herbs used to perfume your lingerie and handkerchief drawers, should you be old enough to remember cloth handkerchiefs.

Sashay is a dance step etymologically mangled from to hunt, chase, catch.

Chassé is a gliding dance step...

But what about chassis

That seems to be a box of eye sockets, jewel settings, snail shells, or the base frame an automobile. 

And cachet? Something can lend a certain cachet, a bit of prestige, as sachets lend a certain fragrance..

I will not be gallivanting or sallying forth. Quite likely a snooze will come on just sitting here at the computer. Traveling in the Amazon and wrestling anacondas on the automobile audiobook takes a lot out of a girl.

Do you know the way to San Jose?
I've been away so long
I may go wrong and lose my way
Do you know the way to San Jose?
I'm going back to find some peace of mind in San Jose
L.A. is a great big freeway
Put a hundred down and buy a car
In a week, maybe two, they'll make you a star

I do know the way to San Jose, as I have been there about four times in the last couple of weeks. Unfortunately, whatever its appeal at the time of the song, it is now pretty much a great big freeway too.

I do know the way to San José: drive through Atenas Centro, take the Radial from El Pollo to the autopista, go about 35 Km East on the Autopista del Sol & you're in San José. Don't forget to take coins for the tolls :-)
