A deaf husband and a blind wife are always a happy couple, except for Rubin and Eve—remember when we had them over for dinner, and they were fighting the whole time in this really passive-aggressive way, like Rubin would mention how much better the food was than what he’s used to at home, and Eve kept saying how in shape I looked and she’s been trying to get Rubin not to “pig out” so much, and at the end of the night it was a huge relief to get rid of them, and we gave each other this look that said, “God, we’re such a better couple than they are,” which I think is basically why we had them over in the first place.
