Tết rồi

This post is a little late, but "Chúc mừng năm mới" everybody. For her second time in a lifespan of but 14 months, Summer has made the journey to the Seattle Center to celebrate New Year in true Viet style (see if you can recognize her in last year's post).

Midway through the festivities, Summer mistook Tết for Burning Man (in fact, Summer lives much of her life as if she were at a baby version of Burning Man), and started to invoke the principles of "Radical Inclusion" and "Gifting." The other babies seemed into it, but their parents seemed a little less comfortable with the idea. Witness the video below:

Careful observers will note two incidents from the clip:

  1. An entire family does a 180 in response to Summer's aggressive friendliness. I guess they really didn't want to buy some spring rolls after all.
  2. An overprotective father turns away his stroller to shield his child from a potential encounter with a "free spirit."
