I Lived Out My Friend's Dream...And Loved EVERY Second Of It

Is Gibbons The Worst Friend Ever?!

November 12, 2018

Ever take a great amount of joy in getting to do something that a good friend of yours has wanted to do their entire life IN FRONT OF THEM!? No? Just me? Okay then, I guess it's confirmed that I'm the worst friend EVER. Guess what?! I don't care and I'd do it again in a second. Have no idea what I'm talking about? Let me explain!

 

Riggs, Alley and I had the opportunity to be kids again and be in attendance for DOUBLE DARE LIVE! That's right! The show we all knew and loved as kids is BACK ON TV and now has a national tour. Alley and I were pretty stoked, but Riggs was OVERJOYED. Like, seriously. Just look at the joy in his face as he got to meet the legend Marc Summers.

Riggs doesn't look happy enough for ya? Check this out!

As you can see, Riggs was, like, REALLLLLLY happy to be there. As part of the live show, Marc Summers runs up and down the arena looking for volunteers to partake in the PHYSICAL CHALLENGE. Riggs jumped up, waving his hands and screaming like a lunatic EVERY time there was a search for volunteers. He never got picked. I stayed to the side, not wanting to take away my friend's chance to live out his dream....and then it happened.

 

I can't say for sure what made me do it, but I JUMPED UP. Surely, if Marc Summers was going to pick anyone from our group, it'd be his buddy Riggs (oh, did I mention that Marc gave Riggs his personal number and that they'd been texting for a week leading to the event?!), RIGHT?! Not today! Marc pointed RIGHT AT ME. I could've been a real hero and given the chance to go on stage to Riggs (who did all of the leg work to get us the greatest tickets in the place), but...well..that's not how I roll. 

 

I pretty much jumped right over Riggs and RAN LIKE THE WIND to the stage. What was going to happen next?! I had no idea, but I knew it would be one of the most memorable moments of my life. And guess what?! It was JUST THAT!!! Don't believe me? Check out the video for yourself!

Am I a terrible friend? Maybe. Did I have one of the most fun times of my life? Yes. Given the chance to do it again, would I once more totally steal Riggs' chance to live out his childhood dream? Well, I'll answer that question with a question of my own: Does a bear make doody in the woods?! ABSOLUTELY!
