You can assign the "orderQueue.shift()" directly to the shipping variable.

I thought it just wanted shipping to be the first token in array of orderQueue, these are teh directions :

The orderQueue array contains a list of customer orders. Create a new variable named shipping -- remove the first item from the array and place it in the shipping variable.
