Let me look at the analogue of what you are doing. When you are playing pleasant tunes and showing pleasant images, that you had to compose yourself, to your boss, that relaxes you, too?

For those this table is different than the special character table but after that they seem the same.

Did you try the first 31?

Either way, searching through the table, I found that the short and the long dash are 45 and 196 respectively.
