I was sitting just outside the Latte Da Coffee Shop in Lee Vining, California. The coffee shop also functions as the check-in for the El Mono Inn.
A man stumbled up the stairs. He is dressed in hiking clothes, although he doesn’t look like he has ever been on a hiking trail in his life
He went into the coffee shop. About 5 minutes later he came out of the coffee shop, looking askance. As he was going down the stairs, he said “If things get worse like today, I can go to my car, and use my oxycontin.”
I returned my dishes to the coffee shop. The proprietress was still talking about the exchange with the guy. She said that she and Lisa, an employee, had to deal with the guy. According to her, he was “spooky, downright creepy”.
