Daily Prompt: Toy Story
What was your favorite plaything as a child? Do you see any connection between your life now, and your favorite childhood toy?
Our family members did not have a special toy for each of us. Yes we had board games, there was snakes and ladders and Monopoly.
Monopoly was my favorite, most of us could play it and there were all kinds of tactic we used to win the game. It was not easy. The winning depended on what numbers we got when we rolled the dice. We did learn to count money buy and sell houses. We had a very enjoyable time.
I learned the art of saving and counting money and also buying and selling houses by playing Monopoly. In real life I neither became a ‘Real Estate’ agent nor an Accountant.
I settled for teaching which in a way helped the experience I got in playing Monopoly,i.e how to do things in a calm manner.
