What's in your Amazon cart? A musical theater major shops for diverse merchandise

Sep 28, 2018 - Comments: 0

Matthew Brightbill's latest assortment of Amazon items consists of five items that are seemingly random and unrelated but are all interconnected upon closer examination. 

Matthew, a musical theater and public relations double major, is preparing his latest Amazon order.

“Whenever have money and I need something, it’s Amazon," Brightbill said. "I have Prime Two-Day Shipping, so I don’t have to wait. It’s the best.”

At the local bowling alley, my friends are trying to find a pair of shoes that fit reasonably, a ball without gratuitously large finger holes, and, quite frankly, their bearings in what is a foreign spot to them. 

Unlike them, I came prepared. 

I haul up my bowling bag I brought along, packed with two custom bowling balls, a pair of shoes with interchangeable bottoms, a rosin bag, a towel, and a glove, among other small commodities.
