Or just happy about getting money.
Possibly - it seemed a bit strange at the time, and it was part of the reason I stared at him.

Hardly anyone gives money at that particular intersection (although people do, occasionally). He looked entirely harmless and sweet, with his smile - so perhaps that helped him get some. I was not in the lane immediately next to him. He was holding a cardboard sign (probably created for him by his drug dealer, said the LEO I talked to).

I should also mention that this river bed area is walkable all the way to where his car was found. It's a major thoroughfare for homeless people in our area. And I know at least three people on sight (not counting Laspisa) who have been living rough for more than 20 years. All three are schizophrenic. The weather is so mild here and, well, that river usually has some flow all year round. As I mentioned earlier, there's a food pantry only a block away.
