    hahahah!! Couldn't agree more!!! I think every hmong child raised in the states all had a similar lifestyle, that is if you were a first generation. I can't speak for most second gens.

    1. When you have to do the new years thing and you get a chicken as a pet for 1-2 days before it is killed for the new years
    2. When everyone you meet is told to be your cousin
    3. When your old cousins invite you over to hang out, but then they just drink with your dad
    4. When your parents leave someone's house and that someone is important to them, they do the money exchange thing where they give them money and they don't accept it but really you know they want to but they don't cuz they wanna show respect. And they know you don't want to give them money, but to show respect you do.
    5. When you play that jump rope game or the hmong version of dodge-ball
    6. When you get so dark over the summer
    7. When you play that hand game w/your cousins to see who has to do something or who is it.
    8. When you play a game where you place something in someone's hand and the person w/their back down guess who has that something in their hand
    9. When you see your elders kill pigs, chickens, and goats
    10. When you have rice with water for breakfast
