Don't make me get drunk at my own festival

There is that brief period of time when you are throwing a party when things get awkward.

No one shows up right at time you put on the invitation Still, you get everything ready to go right at 8 p.m.

You sit by yourself and hope someone shows up. The anxiety gets to your nerves and you decide to have a drink.

Then you are faced with a question: Do I keep drinking?

If no one shows up at least I can drown my tears in the $300 in booze and food I bought for the night. If I don't have another will I seem too eager when the first guest does finally arrive? No one likes to be the first at a party and it only gets worse when the host is overly eager to break the tension immediately...

Sweet baby Jesus, people, don't make me get drunk for my own festival.
