Up Close and Personal with Ben Heffron
Ambrosia Times - Hey, you with the "kick me" sign on your back! Who are
Ben Heffron - Ben Heffron, or sometimes Mr. Heffer, or Heffer. I also like
DaHeffer... buts thats just my screenname...
AT - Well, groovy! I think I have heard about you. You're the new kid
in town, right?
BH - Which town, the one the one percenters have taken over? If that
town, no. If Rochacha, yes. I moved here eighteen years ago... hmm..
thats right around when I was born, weird...
AT - Oh, cool. Did you notice that your initials are the same as the
initials for someone named "Butt Head"? But anyway, on with this
interview. What do you do for Ambrosia as an intern?
BH - I am an integral part of the developmental feedback loop. I am also
studying interpersonal relationships in a small office setting.
AT - What the heck is a feedback loop?
BH - They kick me, I say "ow". It works really well believe it or not.
And if I don't put the chair together right, they kick me more.
AT - Interpersonal relationships? What kind of horsepuckey is that?
BH - I think the military might be offended if I give the clear meaning
of that phrase.
AT - Didn't you really come here just to play games all day?
BH - Truthfully, yes.
AT - Ah. I see. But the people at Ambrosia don't let you play that
much, do they?
BH - Thats classified.
AT - Do they abuse you?
BH - No.
