You will remember "separate" if you remember not the rat in it, but a rat in it.

not the rat in it, but a rat in it.

Hey! C'mon you guys! That's what I said :
And separate has a rat in the middle
Perhaps I should have written : And separate has "a rat" in the middle ...
But after the discussion about over use of the quotation marks ... ?

but if you don't use quotation marks when 'appropriate', you might end up using nearly unreadable fonts, or *unusual* characters, or actually unreadable colors, or even [HORRORS] caps, just to add emphasis. not to mention writing almost entirely in lower case just to de-emphasize your ordinary musings.

And Marianna made the same mistake I did so many years ago when I was told that there was a rat in separate.

Like the gal who wore sweaters for three good reasons. One, they kept her warm, and the other two were obvious.
