Study Hal: Week 39 – Online Shopping

Ahh, online shopping. What a wonderful, miraculous, and fickle thing. While trying to get the garden ready for spring, Hal noticed that his bird bath broke over the winter. He thought he caught a lucky break finding a cheap replacement online… It was only when it arrived that he discovered he’d bought a bird bath for a doll house!

Hal was chagrined, but I had a good laugh about his mistake. I’ve done the same thing before by speeding through an item description. Hal is too stubborn to return this one, so maybe it’ll become a candy dish. Has anyone else ordered something unexpected because they only skimmed the specifications?

If you’re new here, welcome in! Despite his absent mind this week, Hal is, in fact, only a few weeks from getting is U-M diploma. He posts here on Tuesdays to share his experiences, but if you’d like to see the rest of the videos, check out the Study Hal tag!

I like that it’s even too miniature for Hal!
