Grand Prix Junior: Photo A Day - Go

Day 24 of "May Photo A Day Challenge" : Go

Whenever I hear the word 'Go', the only image that comes to my mind is that of a Monopoly board, and the big "GO" on the starting cell, instructing us to collect $200 as we pass. I used to have the Indian version of the game, which told us to collect Rs. 2000 as we passed. And it had the names of Indian airports and Indian cities, which we owned and then built houses and hotels upon.

As my sister and I grew up, we handed down all our games to our cousins, including our Monopoly set. I last played this game in 2010, with my cousin in Guwahati. And the one memory of this game, that stands out for me, is when I landed in jail three times in a row! "Go to Jail. Do not pass 'Go'. Do not collect Rs. 2000." Brutal. My cousin had a field day! I actually had to mortgage some of my property to continue in the game! :(

I was originally going to post a picture of the Monopoly board for today's prompt. Rather, a picture of my monitor with a Monopoly board image opened in full screen on it... as I don't have the actual game anymore. But then I noticed that quite a few participants, in this month's photo-a-day challenge, were posting on the same idea today. So I decided to go with plan B... i.e. my backup...

Yes, that's my backup... my little knight in shining armour... my nephew UV... rising to the occasion once again! LOL! :P

Since his Dad rides a motorcycle, he obviously had to get one too... complete with a helmet! The picture above was taken on 26th January, 2011. He was five at that time. And he didn't much like that Spiderman helmet. He wanted a black one with a full face cover... like a grown-up helmet, you know... the kind worn by grown-up riders! Unfortunately, we couldn't find one like that, to fit the little head of this 5-year-old Grand Prix Junior Champ! Hence, the Spiderman! :P

This is my 24th post for 2013 May Photo A Day Challenge.

Kajal, they sure do. Youknow... last year when I first did this FMS photo a day challenge, most of my posts in the series were about him!

I know Pixie! Just the other day, I was talking with a couple of friends in my building, and we were discussing the exact same thing! Wish we had Hermione's time turner, huh? :P
