“Straight up” should be hyphenated.
Hmm. Admittedly, it’s been nearly a decade since I graduated and I’m absolutely rusty on the finer points of grammar, but I can’t remember ever seeing “straight up” written professionally with a hyphen, and I couldn’t find a reference to it in any guides out there. I don’t think it is? If anyone can point me to a grammatical rule that makes it so, I’ll change it, but for now, I squint suspiciously and leave it as it is.
Hyphens are my bane sometimes.
