It only took ten minutes yesterday to spot them. They were all over the place. Everywhere we went, giddy voices were screaming, “We found it!”

The men’s voices were slurred, and the women’s voices sounded like drunk Paris Hiltons. Every place we went and every party we passed, the drunken men would scream to their drunken mates “We found the party!” while the women would scream in excitement.

Watching these sub-species of humans, I kept waiting to see them do something. I felt like I was at a people zoo.

So they finally felt found the party? You’d think they’d tell other people. Not these people. Once they found they found the party, they also found their spot.

It seems that people are very territorial. Once they find their spot at a party, they will do anything not to leave it.

It’s amazing. You can’t move them. You can’t even get by them once they’ve found their spot. So you literally have to pretend you’re at a human zoo and just watch the interaction of the species.

You’d figure with all the excitement, something would happen other than territorial instincts. Do you know what actually does end up happening? What ends up happening is exactly what I said in yesterday’s blog, i.e., NOTHING.

That is, nothing except that this species begins to get a little disappointed. The over-the-top energy energy of elation always ends up leading to a pack member tugging at another one’s arm and convincing them that it’s time to go and find the other party of the year.

The funny thing is that the people we saw bop around the daytime parties, were the same people we saw moaning at fireworks at night. It’s exactly what I described in yesterday’s blog, i.e., you all finally made it to the party of the year but forgot to talk to people.

It’s amazing to watch this. The expectations of the 4th of July will bite you in the ass every time.

The great thing about it is that now you can just enjoy the rest of your summer, because now you don’t have the “BBQ” (the bigger, better barbecue) expectations . . . at least until Labor Day rolls around.

After Labor Day, this feeling won’t come up again until Halloween. So now is the time to kick this habit. Stop the mentality that you’ll meet your great love at that one great party. It’s over.

If you can relate to this behavior, then you need to know that nothing will change until you do the work. It’s not the party that’s the problem, it’s you.

Wherever I go there’s a party. I don’t need the 4th of July to find one. That’s the way I live my life, and it’s the same way you need to live yours.

So if you can relate to this, it’s time to invest in something other than drinking to meet people. Try my Men’s Mastery Series, call it a good wakeup call.

Enjoy the 5th of July, because the party is everywhere.
