At least Bao Bao the baby panda is thriving. She tumbled through all of Washington D.C.'s first blanket of snow yesterday and some warm person over at the Smithsonian filmed it all.
It's a great 60 seconds — true Internet gold. It's been reported that many have come down with a heavy case of the "aww's" upon viewing. Which is a hell of a lot better than whatever any human might come down with if they played out in the snow in their birthday suit like Bao Bao.
No matter, though. Bao Bao knows how to appreciate the cold. Bao Bao knows how to become one with it. Perhaps we should all adapt Bao Bao's mentality as we brace ourselves for whatever is about to come and freeze all our joy and resolutions.
