35+ Cartoons Of A Day In The Life Of Our Favorite CoupleBy Louise P
Our favorite cartoon couple is back! This time with even more crazy antics, relatable fumbles, and cute moments like only they know how to depict. We have followed Yehuda Adi Devir and his wife Maya through many ups and downs in their relationship, and now we present you with one more dose of the adorable duo. Yehuda says that he thinks “the reason people like “One of those days” so much is because they identify with it and relive the beautiful moments that were important parts of shaping their own long-term relationship.” This time their cartoon alter egos meet up with their human counterparts for some extra special moments. Which one of these moments do you relate to most? Or are you like us, where it feels Yehuda has actually been drawing your life and not his?
Cravings Are No Joke
Pregnant women should be able to relate to Maya’s seemingly unstoppable appetite and cravings for the downright bizarre. Peanut butter and egg sandwich? No problem! Pickles on your ice cream? Sounds divine! We don’t blame Yehuda for being completely freaked out by what he was seeing.
He says on his blog: “It turns out that it’s not a joke that pregnant women eat strange foods or make strange pairings of unrelated food. In Maya’s case pregnancy makes her crave strong flavors, such as very spicy, very sour or very very very very very salty.”
Yehuda documented all the struggles of Maya’s pregnancy, and we can relate to so many of them. Just one of the many reasons why we love these two! One of these struggles was helping Maya get some exercise before the baby arrives.
But it seems like she didn’t quite understand what a physioball was supposed to help with. Before you blast Yehuda for fat-shaming his wife, he actually read that doing some exercise is supposed to help a woman through the delivery and recovery process, so good on him for trying to help!
This is probably not what Yehuda had in mind when Maya said she wants to get hot and steamy. He probably loves nothing more than a nice, refreshingly cool shower in the morning! Maya, on the other hand, likes things on the face-meltingly scalding side.
How does one compromise on this? Simple, you don’t. You suck it up and embrace the heat if you want to enjoy some time with your hot wife in the shower! What are a couple of 3rd-degree burns between lovers?
Being in a loving relationship means you tolerate A LOT of annoying habits from your partner. Some people chew too loudly. Some people don’t close the kitchen cabinets. And then we get special people like Maya, who cannot choose a song and listen to it all the way through if her life depended on it!
We bet her nickname is something like DJ Skip-Skip. This is one of the many reasons why each person should have their own Spotify account, and they should have separate earphones. Hygiene is also a good argument, but that’s a story for another day.
There is something to be said for a man who is willing to take the middle seat. Bravo, Yehuda. And considering you are 6ft-something tall, this is anything but comfortable. Everyone else on the plane looks like they are having the time of their lives!
But he knows his lady needs her beauty sleep, and Maya sure does look snug as a bug in a rug. You know what they say, happy wife, happy life! Now only if something can be done about the screaming babies…
We just can’t get enough of these two! Whether it is their ridiculous antics while trying to get pregnant or getting up to mischief while out and about, they are true couple’s goals! Here we have another stellar example of something super relatable Yehuda has cartooned.
The eternal struggle of wearing trucker caps. If it’s not giving you hat hair, it’s hitting your car when getting in. When it’s not flying off in the wind, it’s getting in the way when kissing someone. Not to mention when BOTH parties are wearing caps! No amount of duck lips and pouting will help you here, guys.
Poor Yehuda. When will this guy ever catch a break? And especially when trying to get clean or relax. He always gets the short end of the stick. When he is not getting scolded by piping hot shower water, he is stuck in the corner of a tiny bathtub.
How is a guy supposed to get clean over here? If you ask us, Yehuda needs to drink a few big gulps of that wine. Maybe that will be the only way he will be able to relax in this situation.
Couples will know, Marvel comics are one of those things you either totally commit to together or agree to never force the other into watching. These two luckily fall into the former category. They are Marvel fans through and through.
They admit to watching the movie twice when it first hit cinemas. Don’t worry guys; you are not alone. Who can resist 2 hours of Chris Hemsworth in all his glory? Certainly not us! By the looks on their faces, they are pretty shook up about what just happened.
Social media plays such a major role in our lives today, never mind the added pressure it adds to a relationship. Placing your whole life on a public platform for all the world to see is quite bizarre if you think about it.
Yehuda clearly has some reservations about Maya hopping on the Instagram train too. But we doubt that Maya is the type to post scandalous photos of herself in skimpy outfits. We would follow her on Instagram for photos of their adorable baby girl!
Yehuda has previously shown us how bad he gets when he comes down with a bout of the man flu. Maya, on the other hand, continues working until she almost keels over. Now we can see again who is the better patient between the two of them.
Even a big strong guy like him winces at the sight of a few needles. Luckily his hero wife is there to hold his hand. There is something quite endearing about such a burly guy being totally defenseless at the sight of a needle.
How many couples does it take to change a lightbulb? In this case, just one. Other couples would probably stand there arguing about it for hours, but these two get right down to it. Yehuda knows when to man up and take one for the team.
Perhaps you guys should think about investing in a ladder. This just does not seem safe at all. Or perhaps, a little tumble will make for a great new comic! We see what you are trying to do… Smart thinking, guys!
Man, a nice relaxing couples massage sounds like a great idea. Some peaceful music playing, fragrances of oils hanging thick in the air, some professionally trained hands rubbing out all the tension you carry in your back… Sounds absolutely divine!
And then there are these two. Maya is practicing her newly acquired knowledge on her unsuspecting husband. She thinks the harder, the better, Yehuda begs to differ. It looks like he would rather have a professional handle his aching back next time!
Even though Maya and Yehuda have shared a lot of hysterical moments in this comic series, now and then, they break from tradition and share something a little more intimate. Sometimes it is heartwarming, like every time Maya found out she was not pregnant.
And sometimes it is just downright beautiful, like in this picture. We really never thought a static, animated image could carry so many emotions, but we stand corrected. These two love each other unconditionally and are truly serving us goals!
Living with a partner has its ups and downs. It ranges from the fun and flirty to the dirty and outright disgusting. This here is one of those disgusting moments that they don’t warn you about in the marriage handbooks.
The very real, very scary, drain hair monster is usually the third person in the relationship. Always sneakily waiting in the darkness of the shower drain until it is too late. You also can’t stop feeding it, shedding is part of the package if you have a wife with a gorgeous mane like Maya’s!
When seeing this picture, Bruno Mars’ hit “Leave the Door Open” comes to mind. “Just shaved, smooth like a newborn.” The feeling of a clean-shaven face is literally so poetic, it drove Bruno Mars to write about it. Then you know it’s good!
Unfortunately for Maya, Yehuda makes it quite clear that it is only temporary. He is such a hairy guy, it probably didn’t even last till lunchtime. His beard is pretty impressive, though. But we would love to see what he looks like without it!
Innocent Until Proven Guilty
We all know girls look like Barbie dolls in every way. They don’t poop, and they sure as hell don’t fart. So, in a crowded lift, if there is a waft of something nasty in the air, it was 100% the big guy. Even if it wasn’t him, it was him.
Poor Yehuda, he has no idea. Luckily the chances of seeing those people again are slim to none, so the embarrassment is merely momentary. By the looks of pure horror on their faces, this one was a stinker! Shame on you Maya!
Every year we say, “valentine’s day is a sham” or “it’s a corporate construct feeding the capitalist overlords.” You know the drill. But yet, we cannot help to succumb to the air of romance that hangs thick in the air.
When you have been together long enough, romance also looks a little different. Slinky lingerie turns into your partner’s t-shirt. And holy socks start to have a certain charm and appeal. Whatever floats your boat, guys! We won’t ask any questions.
For partners to watch sports together can be a great idea. It can also be a dismal failure. Sports bring out all kinds of hidden personalities in people. It is pretty cute that Maya is trying to get in on the action, though.
But we can’t say for sure how long it will last. If they are watching soccer, she will quickly learn there is little to no action actually worth cheering for. It will be a very short-lived cheer career for her.
Couples who are as yin and yang as these two are a special breed. He is cool, calm, and collected; she is fiery, bubbly, and a little unhinged. It’s a beautiful symbiotic relationship. This image is a perfect reflection of how that balance plays out in the day-to-day.
On the one hand, we have Yehuda neatly folding his neutral basic shirts into a symmetrical pile. And on the other, we have Maya (who is all of us, really) trying her best to create some structure but ultimately giving in to her fate.
Here we have a prime example of another awful habit we would all love to see the end of. Nail-biting is better used in a figurative sense than literally gnawing our fingers to the bone like some people. We are looking at you, Yehuda.
The worst part is nail biters always think they can stop this nasty habit on their own. No, you can’t. It has been proven time and time again; your banged-up fingers are proof of that! For the love of all that is good, get some help!
Beauty is pain; it is as simple as that. Most men don’t get to see all the primping and pressing that goes on behind the scenes for their ladies to look as good as they do. Maybe it is better that way.
When they do get a glimpse into this secret underworld, they tend to be overcome by shock and horror! Yehuda is keeping a safe distance because with his hairy arms, who knows what might happen if he gets caught in the wax crossfire!
Ladies, calm down. You should take it as a compliment if your man serves as “eye candy of the day” down at the park. Don’t tell us you have never ogled at a dashing lad while out for a jog?
And when your guy looks this good, you better put a paper bag over his face if you want to keep other ladies from staring. You got yourself a catch Maya, show him off a little! In the end, you are still the lucky one who gets to take him home.
Maya and Yehuda welcomed an adorable baby girl into their lives, ultimately also introducing a new character into their cartoons. It has been beautiful seeing them grow and help each other through the more challenging experiences that are all part and parcel of being new parents.
It has also been hysterical to see all the gross new things parents have to endure! The diaper changes have been especially comical, but this sneeze takes the cake. Where do babies get all that snot from! It just never ends!
Winter is Here
Maya, we feel you, girl! Winter is all about tights, layers, and growing out your fur. We will attribute it to evolution. If mother nature would have wanted us to shave in the winter, she would have stopped giving us hair centuries ago!
We propose a new Frozen themed tune for the winter:
“Let it grow, let it grow
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it grow, let it grow
Turn off the lights don’t slam the door
I don’t care what you’re going to say
Let the hair rage on
The cold will never bother me again today”
Wifey Knows Best
Everyone has a bit of an off day every now and then. And couples get to understand what their partner needs to get them out of a slump. Yehuda has learned that Maya loves outward expressions of love; the more, the better!
He, on the other hand, is a simple creature, as are most men. Show them a little skin, and they are right back at the top of their game! If only everything in life was this easy. Have some bills to play? Flash the banker!
If It Fits, It Sits
If we have learned anything from the One of Those Days comics, it is that couples do the strangest things. If they aren’t blaming each other for farts in public, they are busy being weird at home. This is a perfect example of the latter.
All sense of personal space goes out the door when you get to this level of the relationship. There is a big ol’ comfy couch, plenty of space for both to stretch out comfortably. But Maya would much rather perch herself on top of her man. No judgment here!
Another classic case of indecent public indecency is blamed on someone else. This time on the baby! Shame on you, Yehuda. But we guess you learned from the best, so Maya is really to blame here. Maya, if you can deal it, you have to take it too.
Let’s just hope you can break the cycle before the little one picks up on it? A little word of advice, Yehuda, you only pee in the pool when you can swim away. Never when you are standing still. You’re welcome!
What is the loudest sound in the world? A jet engine? Nope. Perhaps an Iron Maiden concert? Wrong again. Is it an atomic bomb? We don’t know, but we hope we never have to find out. The correct answer is, in fact, a mosquito at 2 am.
Tell us, how is it that one person always gets victimized by a mozzie and the other gets off scot-free? It is never a case of both people being harassed. This is the universe giving you a big fat middle finger.
Having baby Ariel in the One of Those Days comics has been nothing but adorable. Even when she is filling a room with boogers or screaming at the top of her lungs, she still manages to melt our hearts with her big doe eyes.
Maya obviously also can’t handle the cuteness. Especially when she hit the milestone of her first word, and it was Mama! I’m not crying, you’re crying! This is one of those moments that you just want to freeze and keep in a bottle, and luckily for Maya, Yehuda perfectly captured it in cartoon form.
Well, if this isn’t the most accurate depiction of millennials without Wi-Fi. It is like we can’t even remember the struggles of the Dial-Up Age, where it took 300 years to download the latest Avril Lavigne single. What has happened to us?
The internet has made us soft, that’s what. We used to be able to build a fort while reenacting yesterday’s episode of the Power Rangers and wearing Jenko jeans and being tangled up in a slinky. Now the internet goes down, and we forget how to human. Pathetic.
IKEA For The Win
Don’t we just all love IKEA? The pretend living spaces, the mazelike layout that makes you feel like a kid again, and don’t forget about the meatballs! But obviously, in the Adi Devir household, there are mixed feelings about this furniture fantasyland.
Don’t let the complicated Swedish instructions get you down, big guy. Not everyone can be good at everything! Heck, if we could illustrate HALF as well as you, we would be very happy! So, let Maya do her thing, and you can be good at something else next time.
Winter Strikes Again
The temperature difference between these two is hilarious. Do you remember the time Maya melted poor Yehuda’s face off in the shower? How about the time she instantly turned him to ice with the touch of her cold toes? The poor guy just can’t win.
This time around, it is Maya who is suffering a bit. Winter has rolled around, and she is chilled to the bone all the time! No matter how much she bundles up, she just does not seem to get warm.
Marvel strikes again. These two Marvel fans headed to the cinema to check out the final installment of the Wolverine franchise, Logan. *Spoiler Alert* Like many fans, they were left shattered after the closing titles. You have gone and dealt us a dirty, Marvel.
These two (and us, honestly) were heartbroken, especially after sitting through the end credits, just to find there is not even an after-title sequence. That one last little glimmer of hope, telling us it will be O.K. Curse you, Marvel! We rue the day we accepted you into our lives!
Throughout our whole relationship with Yehuda and Maya, we have always wondered how does he keep in such great shape. He is always in such prime physical shape (except for that one time after their baby was born), and it looks like really hard work!
Now his secret is out. He has his own little drill sergeant/motivational speaker sitting on his neck, literally. Keep up the good work guys; it is obviously paying off! Now, where can we get one of those for our own fitspo journey?
Now, this is a scene we know all too well. Dude gets to wash his hair, body, and teeth all with one tube of mystery foam, in-and-out of the shower in 2 minutes flat. Next, he throws on the same outfit as every other day (he has 87 of them) and he can be ready in under 10 minutes.
It’s not that easy for the ladies, though. And they don’t seem to realize that. There is always an extra few minutes to check the ‘gram first in between the shower and the closet. But we promise it will be worth it in the end! Good things take time!
Here They Are!
Presenting the real Mr. and Mrs. One of Those Days! Finally, we get to meet the man and woman behind our favorite comic couple. But we have grown so attached to the animated Yehuda and Maya they just had to be included.
It would feel wrong to see the real-life couple without their cartoon extensions! Here we see Yehuda holding down the fort as the rest of the clan have a snooze around him. Just when we thought this bunch could not get any more adorable.
Fun in The Sun
This is another super creative collaboration between the two couples because, let’s face it, the cartoon couple is every bit as real to us as their human creators. Nothing to see here, just a normal couple walking with some cartoons in the park, move along people.
We love that we can finally see just how accurately Yehuda has illustrated their cartoons though. Even down to his wife’s mesmerizing eyes and majestic hair, and his iconic t-shirt. The addition of a little bird friend was also a cute touch!
We always knew Maya and Yehuda are a couple who know to have fun. From their Black Friday antics to everything they did to keep themselves busy during the lockdown, this is the kind of couple we want to be friends with.
But we also wouldn’t mind befriending their cartoon versions! We are just astonished at how fantastically Yehuda was able to capture the essence of their spirits in these comics. It is really evident when you see them side by side, or shall we say, on top of each other.
Nothing solidifies a friendship quite like a selfie! The gang is all together, and it is time to snap a quick one! We stand amazed at how we kind of just accept that there are four people in this picture, and not two people and two cartoons.
This speaks to Yehuda’s uncanny ability to humanize his artworks. Just through a few well places shadows, or exaggerated body movements, he can make us feel as if we are living through these daily struggles along with them. It is the mark of a true artist.
The Real Deal
And here they are, the real deal, Maya and Yehuda, as they live and breathe. We have seen you through your courting and dating phase, and we have witnessed your engagement. We followed your ups and downs all the way through trying to conceive a baby.
Your pregnancy was another rollercoaster that we were along for, and the arrival of your adorable little Arial brought tears to our eyes (both from happiness and laughter). Thank you for taking us along on this epic journey and we are sitting tight to see the next chapters unfold!
