Where Does Salt Come From?

Luckily, I was freed from my indecision when a disgustingly poorly dressed (and poorly groomed) man broke into the conversation. His drab green military jacket looked like it had been to ‘Nam and then pissed on. Wouldn’t've surprised me. “God put salt on the Earth as a symbol of his covenant.” Man, this just keeps getting better and better…

Aparently, ya see, the earth was once just a big slab of salt. Then, God did some stuff, and created the oceans. Since, as any good God-fearing moron knows, salt and water make mud, He formed Adam out of the mud, and breathed life into him. So, when the Bible refers to “Salt of the Earth,” it’s because His children have more salt in them.

Or something like that.

The blonde (who, AFAICT, was a Christian of some sort) started arguing with the man, while both were making every attempt to not let themselves know that they were arguing. The brunette, who seemed to be of some sort of New Agey persuasion, was extremely interested - although, perhaps only because her friend was getting annoyed. That sort of thing went on until C street. The two females got off the bus, and the not-so-sweet-smelling man gave them each a tiny pamphlet.
