Oddity

Some things just don't translate. You will be amazed (and perhaps saddened) to learn that 'belly button fluff' is one of these things. The French don't seem to have any. At least, they don't have a word for it.
(And yes, before you ask, that's the sort of major problems a humble translator like myself must face daily). (Amazing what you find in books, isn't it?)
