Hot Mess – Part Two

Snookie’s mug shot. I don’t think the evening went well

So, yesterday I wrote about “hot mess” in relationship to the military and food. Today, I will talk about the “hot mess” we all are probably more familiar with – the person who is a “hot mess”. 

(Please note: for the sake of friendship and family, I will not be using any personal photographs or examples in this post.)

There seem to be two schools of thought about being a “hot mess”. One version of a hot mess is a person who retains their appeal despite looking disheveled in appearance. As in – she woke up looking like a hot mess. (Don’t worry good friend, I won’t tell everyone that your hair looks like this in the morning)

You could be a hot mess  if your hair looks like this when you wake up in the morning.

The other use seems to describe someone who just does not have it together.  Bridget Jones of Bridget Jones Diary might be an example of a “hot mess”.

In my research (HA!) I did find a on line comic strip named Hot Mess. You can check it out at Hot Mess Comic. 

Also since we all love lists, I also found a list of 25 indications that you are a hot mess. (25 Hot List)

So there we are.  Hot mess as food and as a personal trait or state of being.

I wonder what it is called when you are beyond being a hot mess?  No, don’t tell me.

Thanks for reading
