Ava Ryan hot mess friend

Sometimes we just need to be called out for being a hot mess, and a little girl’s viral video about the way we show up late and cancel plans does just that.

Ava Ryan, AKA one of the internet’s greatest gifts, plays “Charlene, your hot mess friend” in a video her mother, Katie Ryan, posted to Instagram and Facebook.

How someone Ava’s age manages to perfectly riff on the 20-or-30-something “hot mess” we all have in our lives (or have been ourselves,) we’ll never know, but hats off to her comedic timing. Also, her mom might write these for her, WHO KNOWS!?

Ava expertly calls out the way we cancel plans because we are “too busy,” when in reality we’ve spent most of the day looking at memes on our phones.

It’s safe to say people seriously related to Ava’s latest work of comedic genius. Facebook users shared the video nearly 8,000 times and the video earned more than 1,000 comments on Instagram.

We love you, Ava. Please never stop making us laugh.
