  • Chapter 5: Getting ready for The Fish Bowl

    Thankfully, I landed the last auditioning spot for The Fish Bowl. The show would be filmed at the Community Theater tomorrow. I had to arrive at 9:30 in the morning. I had less than 24 hours to perfect my product.

    The show’s producer explained the judges would choose the top three inventions they predicted to succeed. If mine was chosen, they would invest in it. I had to ask Dad what that meant.

    “It means the judges will give you a large sum of money to help you get the product off the ground,” Dad explained.

  • Chapter 3: A disco entrepreneur?

    “Son,” Dad spoke calmly, in what sounded like the beginning of a punishment speech, “one day you’ll learn not to jump into everything so quickly. You have a knack for making decisions and asking questions later, instead of asking questions first and then making decisions.”

    “I’m sorry, Dad,” I said. “I’ll put all my allowance toward the disco ball and earn extra money for the rest. I’m just mad I was ripped off!”

    “Who said you were ripped off?” Dad asked.
