Years before she was making us collectively sob as the heroine of Greta Gerwig's Lady Bird, Saoirse Ronan was just a 10-year-old who wanted more than anything to go to Florida. To win a ticket to the sunshine state, she called in to a local radio show doing an impression of the Ginger Bread man from Shrek...and in an extremely lucky turn of events, Graham Norton managed to track down the clip ahead of Ronan's appearance on his show this past Friday, January 18.

And just in case you've forgotten how good that impression is, here's a clip for reference:

Fans online weren't sure what was more adorable—Ronan's impression or her reaction after finding out she had won the tickets to Florida.
