The helpful hyphen

You know, there’s something to be said for punctuation. It can be many things: a tool, a toy, a clarifier. It’s mighty powerful, this punctuation stuff. Just LOOK at how helpful the hyphen is here in the opening scene of The Witcher: Blood Origin when Jaskier is in disbelief (and fear, Jaskier-style) upon hearing Seanchaí’s message to him about his destiny and path as The Sandpiper.

He says, “I beg to differ. You — you are a timestopping, shapeshifting, probablygonnaeatmewithoutsaltatsomepoint sort of story teller.”

Dang! How I do love a well-placed hyphen!
