At least one former Evening Magazine host has met Jeff Bezos …

I’ve had only one run in with him.

We used to do this thing called “Best of Western Washington.” We went to give him a plaque for winning “Best Boss.”

We hand him the plaque. And he says, “Oh, hey, this great. Uh, wow. Um, I want to thank all the, –”

He looks down at the thing.

“I want to thank all the readers of your magazine for this award.”

He had a weird laugh, which he doesn’t have anymore. He got rid of that. Can you get plastic surgery on a laugh? I don’t know. That’s his whole thing. He even gave us a couple of those laughs and then looked into the camera, saying, “Well, geez, I’d like to thank your readers for this amazing award.”

We thanked our readers as well.
