Two years in a row now, I own QBP’s “dress up as a co-worker” Halloween contest. I am Ben Hopland. Some have said that I may even be a better Ben Hopland than Ben Hopland himself. Yes I walked into the contest with my head down staring at my broken hard drive in one hand, and my yellow axe in the other. The lunchroom has never cheered for Ben as much as they did when I dropped that hard drive and slammed it with my yellow axe. I took my award without pride or a crack in my lip, grabbed my brown hat & trench coat, and stormed my path through the lunchroom crowd without one single contact of another eye. I am Ben Hopland.
