My savvy friend whose use of “hehe” provoked all these questions said that “hehe” is one of his favorite words.
That’s just what I’d suspected and feared: while I’m ha-ha-ing my way into middle age, younger people have coined a new laugh. They’re “heh-heh”ing to professors who hear “hee-hee”ing; they’re being conspiratorial with fortysomethings confused by the terms of the conspiracy.

Some of my friends are above it—they don’t “ha” much or at all, which makes me self-conscious.
They accept an amusing back-and-forth as a normal course of events and press on hilariously, without a lot of ha-ha goofery. Even among those regal beagles, I have to laugh away. The “ha” is transparent, like “said.” If you’re chatting or texting, a single “ha” means that a joke has occurred, and you’re respectfully tipping your hat to it, but that’s all it deserves.
My phone has a “haha” autocorrect that turns a reasonably good laugh into a deranged mess—an incoherent hahhhahaahahhh or a crazy HAHAHAHAHA—and if I hit send before catching it, I send a retraction.
