Scottrick, a mild-mannered college student, always dreamed of having a million-dollar idea and finds success by winning a Martin Mull Color-a-Song contest with a wild concept, but his other ideas like Nixon Dog Food, clothing for telephones, and a rock star game are mostly comical failures.
After graduation, he takes a ho hum job in research for the Warreton medical products company. Here he finally has a million-dollar idea, but gets canned anyway, by an overbearing boss. He is enraged when his patent is subject to a multi-million dollar infringement suit and the company desperately needs his help. Can a deep-sixed employee rebound as happy as a puppy with his tail wagging? - not Scottrick!
Moving on, he bungles through a series of misadventures including making a wacky record album and trying to be a truck driver and is reduced to working alongside actress wannabe Tina Fey at the YMCA. Emboldened by her later success, he achieves fifteen seconds of fame by writing a book in the obscure field of kitchen collectibles. But can this land him a spot in the hot seat on Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
Waiting for the Real World to Catch Up! takes quirkiness to a zany new level. It's a fun, offbeat story that will have you rooting for the underdog! Readers get to see and experience some of Scottrick's wacko inventions first-hand, including his entry for the Color-a-Song contest, the joke booklet from Clothing for Telephones, the label from Nixon Dog food, the barbeque recipe from a contest on Live with Regis and Kelly, 47 song and video clips on YouTube, and a complete printable game!
