A contagious argument

Mr. Kitchomu

A long time ago, there was a very pleasant person whose name is "Kitchomu".

The couple living in the house next to Kitchomu was always arguing with each other.

"Who are you really? Is there a real you?"

"Yeh of course it's me. So what? What do you mean?"

They shouted with anger and even threw things at each other,

which made awful noises.

One day, Kitchomu decided to make a fence in the space between two houses.

The mayor of that village saw it and asked him:

"Mr.Kitchomu, what are you doing?"

Kitchomu said:

"You really don't know what am I doing?

I'm making a fence."

"Of course I know, but why?"

"Obviously because of that couple, I have to make this fence."

"Oh,

I see. But actually their argument

is not something really weird, is it? So it seems useless to make the fence."

"No. I must do that."

"Ok. As you wish."

Both Kitchomu and the mayor started arguing with each other and their angry voices became louder and louder.

"So didn't I said that just fence round?"

"Yes, I said that I would!" "Ok just do it!" "I said I would!" "Just keep doing!" "I will!"

Then, Kitchomu said:

"Wait. Can argument be contagious? "

The end.
