Request Robby: Flying into Purgatory with wings of fire

Ben Esplin, 23, from St. George, asked me to find a restaurant with a menu item most people wouldn’t normally order unless they wanted to get sick.

Request Robby: Blindness not easy without support

I respect the blind a little more after Brittany Haun from Spanish Fork suggested through the Request Robby Facebook page that I live a whole day blindfolded.  I took this request as a 24-hour challenge to experience a day in the life of a blind person.

Request Robby: Hat, haggard clothes earn Robby $3

I’m offering a position that pays $3 an hour; the requirements are, but not subject to, wandering the streets aimlessly dressed in haggard clothes.

Then donate the money […]
