In this hilarious and ultimately moving memoir, comedians and real-life married couple Annabelle Gurwitch and Jeff Kahn prove that in marriage, all you need is lovea€”and a healthy dose of complaining, codependence, and pinot noir. After thirteen years of being married, Annabelle and Jeff have found a€œWea€™re just not that into us.a€ Instead of giving up, theya€™ve held their relationship together by ignoring conventional wisdom and fostering a lack of intimacy, by using parenting as a competitive sport, and by dropping out of couples therapy. The he-said/she-said chronicle of their intense but loving marriage includes an unsentimental account of the medical odyssey that their family embarked upon after their infant son was diagnosed with VACTERL, a very rare series of birth defects. Annabelle and Jeffa€™s unforgivingly raw, uproariously funny story is sure to strike both laughter and terror in the hearts of all couples (not to mention every single man or woman who is contemplating the connubial state). Serving up equal parts sincerity and cynicism, You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up is a laugh-out-loud must-read for everyone who has come to realize that being a€œin lovea€ can only get you so far. On Cohabitation He says: a€œWithin days of Annabellea€™s arrival, I became very aware that she demanded solitude and had the housekeeping habits of a feral animal.a€ She says: a€œThe guy had some sort of nudity radar. When I would take my clothes off for even a second, Jeff would be in front of me cheering as if hea€™d scored box seats at Fenway Park.a€ On Sex He says: a€œI want to have sex every day, but Annabelle only wants to do it once a week. So we compromise: we have sex once a week.a€ She says: a€œJeff says talking about money before you have sex is a turnoff, but ita€™s only a turnoff if youa€™re talking about not having money. Talking about money before you have sex when you have money is actually a turn-on.a€ On Pregnancy He says: a€œFor Goda€™s sake, all I wanted to do was have sex without a condom for a little while; now we were moments from bringing a new life into the world!a€ She says: a€œMy ass was expanding so fast it was like a Starbucks franchise. On every corner of my ass there was a new branch of ass opening up.a€ From the Hardcover edition.convinced that somehow 1 am conspiring to keep him out just because I also use the bathroom to shower and put on my ...
