Discreet & Discrete

A very useful one this week, I think. Discreet and discrete.
-eet – secretive, private, careful.
-ete – separate, distinct, apart.
"We kissed discreetly in the dark, then departed discretely."

    1. It means "separate" or "distinct." So the two dudes in the picture are going their separate ways, discrete from one another rather than together.
