There's a reason for that straight line, miss. Don't cross over it and you'll be fine.
So here's my question: do you cross the line, or not? What is your reasoning? Is it valid? Is it customary? Can we paint over the line? Drop it into a pot of boiling water so it bends and, like a spaghetti noodle, morphs into a curlique shape? Does the color of the line matter, or it the authority it represents something you believe in?
