Extra salt

They don’t put salt on the table here, because it’s easy to add your own – once you start eating anything, that is. Some things aren’t so good soggy, though. Toast and tears won’t catch on. But seafood is good – salt adds authenticity, as though eating them in their natural habitat. Maybe I’ll come back as a whale next time. Or a stone. A stone would be good.

But surely we should have extra salt? It can’t just go round and round, the same salt recycled through food and tears, onto the food, into the tears, onto the food, into the tears….
