GO: Grand Prix MotoGP Junior!

GO: Grand Prix MotoGP Junior!


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 purchased and then built houses and hotels upon.

As my sister and I grew up, we handed down all our games, including our Monopoly set, to our younger cousins. 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."


My cousin had a field day! I actually had to mortgage some of my property to continue in the game! 😒

So anyway, this word was also a photo prompt during the May 2013 daily photo-blogging challenge on my old blog. And I was originally going to post a picture of the Monopoly board for this 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 of the other participants in the challenge were also posting pictures on the same idea.

So, I decided to go with my "plan B"...


Yes, that's my "plan B"... my little "knight in shining armour" - my nephew UV - rising to the occasion once again! LOL! 😛

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 -- just a couple of weeks after he'd developed a new-found love for my Eggless Chocolate Birthday Cake. He was four 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 4-year-old! Hence, the Spiderman! 😆

Here's a collage of some more pics of this MotoGP Junior Champ in my family! 😁


Btw, as I was reading this old write-up, I realized that the "story" behind this photograph was more interesting than the photograph itself. So, I decided to refile it here under 'MyDiary > FamilyFun' instead of 'MyLensViews'.

Here's more in MyDiary...
