「あなたちょっと」と。「なんだ」と主人しゅじん水中すいちゅう銅鑼どらたたようなこえ返事へんじらないえて妻君さいくんはまた「あなたちょっと」と出直でなお。「なんだよ」と今度こんどはなあな親指おやゆびひとさしゆびれて鼻毛はなげをぐっと。「今月こんげつはちっとりませんが……」「足りんはずはない、医者いしゃへも薬礼やくれいはすましたし、本屋ほんやへも先月せんげつはらったじゃないか。今月はあまらなければならん」とすましてった鼻毛を天下てんか奇観きかんのごとくながめている。「それでもあなたが御飯ごはんあがらんで麺麭パン御食おたべになったりジャム御舐おなめになるものですから」「元来がんらいジャムは幾缶いくかん舐めたのかい」「今月はやっりましたよ」「八つ? そんなに舐めたおぼえはない」「あなたばかりじゃありません、子供こどもも舐めます」「いくら舐めたって五六ごろくえんくらいなものだ」と主人は平気へいきかおで鼻毛を一本一本いっぽんいっぽん丁寧ていねい原稿紙げんこうしうえ植付うえつけるにくいているのでぴんとはりてたごとくに立つ。主人はおもわぬ発見はっけんをしてかんったていで、ふっといて見る。粘着力ねんちゃくりょくつよのでけっしてばない。「いやに頑固がんこだな」と主人は一生懸命いっしょうけんめい吹く。「ジャムばかりじゃないんです、ほかにわなけりゃ、ならないものもあります」と妻君はおおい不平ふへい気色けしき両頬りょうほうみなぎらす。「あるかもれないさ」と主人はまた指をんでぐいと鼻毛を抜く。あかのや、くろのや、種々しゅじゅいろまじなかに一本真白まっしろなのがある。大におどろいた様子ようすあなくほど眺めていた主人はゆびまたはさんだまま、その鼻毛を妻君の顔のまえへ出す。「あら、いやだ」と妻君はかおをしかめて、主人のもど。「ちょっと見ろ、鼻毛の白髪しらがだ」と主人は大に感動かんどうした様子である。さすがの妻君もわらいながらちゃ這入はい経済けいざい問題もんだい断念だんねんしたらしい。主人はまた天然てんねん居士こじかか

Rough translation

"A word with you," she addresses him. "What?" His voice whumps like a gong struck underwater. The wife is clearly not satisfied with this response. "A word with you," she begins anew. "What is it then?" he replies. At the same time, he pushes his thumb and index finger into his nostril and yanks out several nose hairs. "We're a little short this month ..." "We shouldn't be short. Didn't we pay the bookseller and settle the doctor's fee last month? This month should be fine." Without further concern, he gazes in admiration at the extracted nose hairs, as though they were miniature marvels. "The problem is that you've taken to bread rather than rice, and you put so much jam on it." "How much jam did I use then?" "I bought eight jars this month." "Eight? I couldn't have eaten that much." "It's not just you. It's the children too." "However much we ate, it couldn't be more than five or six yen." With calm composure, the master carefully plants his extracted nose hairs, one by one, on his paper. There's flesh on one end, and they stick up straight like needles. Continuing his experiment, he blasts them with a puff of breath. They hold strong to the paper. "Tenacious things." He blows again as hard as he can. "It's not just the jam. There are other things I buy." Her face is ripe with discontent. "I suppose there are." The master goes back with his fingers and yanks out more hairs. Among various browns and blacks is a white one. Seemingly shocked at the site, he stares intently for a moment. Then he presents the hairs, still held between his fingers, to his wife. "No thank you!" She pushes his hand away with revulsion. "Look, look! A gray nose hair!" The master is quite animated. The wife laughs, yields on the subject of finances, and retreats back to the living room. The master, for his part, returns his thoughts to Natural Man.
