Kurt Vonnegut's "The Man Without No Kiddleys": (short story, non-genre): How many kidneys are there among 2 men?

This is a very simple story of chance meeting of two strangers in a park. Both very old. A lonely, very talkative, but simple-minded one who loves to talk of all things that ail him (I thought only India had such people!). Other a more sober one & a stranger to the town.

Talkative one will bug the stranger enough to make him lose his temper. But the kind hearted stranger will regret it & will come back to make amends.
