Behold The Panda!

OK, CAE, see the silver curvy thing at the top? That's the magnificent gift I received. It has a little clip that attaches to my keys and is basically a silver loop with a panda on one side. So I originally cooed over its cuteness but had no idea what in the world I was supposed to do with it.

So I turned the panda this way and that way and cocked my head at the panda and smiled at the panda. Then I dug the cardboard piece that came attached to the panda out of the garbage where I'd hastily thrown it.

I frowned at the picture and attached it to my keys, then frowned at the picture again. "Never lose your keys again!" it claimed and I thought that sounded nice. I don't like digging for my keys and often find myself wondering what pocket I dropped them in when I'm carrying a laptop case or tote or purse. So, following the instructions, I hung it on the side pocket of my bag.

So the keys go inside the bag, the panda hangs outside the bag, nibbling on his little bamboo snack there, and then when I'm ready to find my keys, I say, "Hello, Mr. Panda!" (or think that sentence if there are people around) and I'm good to go.

The power of the panda. Pure brilliance.

How is a "tote" distinguished from a "purse"?

You are adorable, Katie, as is the panda. :)

PP:
Too complicated for a comment. So I took pictures!

CAE:
I'm glad that helped.

Citronella:
I was already writing when you posted your warning. But the thought was very sweet. :)

B*:
I thought of you when I first opened the bag!

Lucy:
You're adorable too. So thanks! (And, for the record, I am adorable right now - I got my hair cut today and I'm so pretty!
