Articles - Mr Levitz' Encounter with a Kappa

Once when Mr. Levitz was young, he was playing in a beaverís dam. Suddenly a green mean Kappa came and tried to eat Mr. Levitzís hara (stomach). Mr. Levitz ran out of the water and the Kappa chased him with his dish of water on his head. Mr. Levitz turned and bowed politely, saying how wise the Kappa was for liking cucumbers. When the Kappa had to return the bow his water spilled, and he was defeated by courtesy.
