Jay has collected a lot of lanyards from conferences and events that he attended related to his work. Dot had the pleasure to choose a purple lanyard when she left home for her grandparents’ place.

When we boarded the bus, she took out her lanyard and pretended to strap it over herself and her teddy. She had her seat belt on.

When we were about to reach our destination, she quickly removed her seat belt, carried her teddy and alighted the bus. Then she asked me to help her to strap the teddy in front of her so that she could carry her teddy in a baby carrier, like she used to when she was a baby.

On other occasions, she uses the lanyard as a leash on her cat and even a belt for herself.

Wow! I never know a lanyard has so many “wonderful” uses, until I learn to see them through her eyes.
