If the sun has set, that means I can leave my place. In the dark, no one will be able to recognize me. I’ll be less likely to cross paths with people I don’t want to see.

I open the apartment door and listen for noise.

If it’s quiet I can run and sneak down the stairs without the neighbors stopping me, wanting to chat. The first thing I’ll do is get today’s newspaper. But the crossword will have to wait. I’ve got to make time as I race to the liquor store for more booze. That’s all I need.
