Riddle Me Airborne

While on my flight out of Toronto last week, I was seated in the middle of a bunch of highschoolers flying to Mexico to facilitate a soccer camp.  When the realization hit me that I’d be sharing my flight to Chicago with them, I lowered my head and hid under my hat playing a game on my iPhone in defiant irony.

Towards the end of the flight, I began to realize that I wasn’t sitting between flighty silliness but in the middle of intelligent soon-to-be hipsters.  Then they started telling each other riddles.  I didn’t hear the first few, but the last one I heard.  I tried my darndest to figure it out and joined in the revelry when we all figured it out.

Here it is:

I am made of cardboard or string;

Where I go you are the boss.

I live inside a different world;

And help keep you from getting lost.

Post your answers in the comments!

The girl that asked this one said that she’d wrote it herself.

    My brain is pudding right now, but I’m going to think about this some more tomorrow and see if I can’t figure it out.

    Ooo! Ooo! Naw. Oo! Nope.
    I’ll get back to you.

    Toilet paper roll. Kite. Map. Cereal box.

    None of these are the answer.

    so don’t have a clue! Another world?

    A different world. Another world. Either one… I might have mis-typed.
