Southern Word of the Week - Hot Mess

(adj.) I know she thought she looked good, but she looked like a hot mess.
(adj.) After partying last night I feel like a hot mess.
(adj.) You can't spell hot mess without me.

Is it Southern?  I have no idea, but I've heard it a lot lately.  Bascially a hot mess is something that went awry somewhere whether it be the way someone looks, feels or acts.  The final example listed above came from a friend and I thought it would be the perfect t-shirt at one of those stores that has all the t-shirts at the beach or whatever. 

So make sure you aren't a hot mess, but also be sure you know what a hot mess looks like because you know you want to point them out to your friends.
