Maybe pouring vodka over ice wasn’t the best choice on the day he decided to quit drinking. Maybe the fumes would help, he didn’t know. And if she came home early she would see it and know nothing was amiss.
Maybe he should have tried yesterday. That was a quiet day-might have been easier. Or tomorrow-things would smooth by then. Today is just not the best for this.
Maybe it would help if he didn’t have a loaded gun in every room. Maybe if there was no moon it would be better.
Maybe he should turn on a light.
