Husband turns collection of his wife's texts into a hilarious collage

Think about all the texts you've sent your significant others over the years. How many times did you use the word "please"? Or "love"? What about "can you"? If you put them all together, you'd probably be surprised by the crazy patterns that emerge. 

However, Reddit user David Van Beveren had a pretty good idea how insane his wife Samantha's texts might look once they were all collected and fit into one place. See Samantha is what we call a TRT — totally random texter. Sure, she'll send her share of the basic, relationship texts like "can you pick up paper towels?", but every so often, she'll also send little gems like this:

"I don't care who you have to kill, just get me their muffin."

I mean, we've all been there, right?

Beveren thinks his wife's random texts are hilarious, so he decided to do her the great honor of compiling a bunch of them, a year's worth to be exact, into a giant collage. He then posted said collage on Reddit. Here's how the final product turned out:


Essentially, this is the millennial equivalent to a Shakespearean sonnet. While the language (and meter) has changed dramatically, the intention is the same — to highlight all the little eccentricities he loves about his lady. Like the fact that she adorably drops apples on herself. Or that she thinks The Powerpuff Girls is deep. These wonderful details that Beveren proudly displayed on Reddit are what separate Samantha from all the other weirdos, and make her his little weirdo. I might cry, it's so moving.

Beveren told BuzzFeed he got the idea to make the collage when his wife sent him this amazing text out of nowhere: "IM A KOALA". Now I too have sent such a text to my fiancé, but koalas are my spirit animal, so it's not so weird. She always sends him random texts of this nature, but this was the first time he felt compelled to post it on Facebook with the caption "This is my wife, everyone." However, instead of blowing the idea on one measly text, he decided to pool his favorites together and make a work of art for the digital age.

And boy did he make the right decision. While the project was no huge feat — we've all screen grabbed before — the Internet went crazy for Beveren's textual homage. It was only posted on Imgur two days ago and already has over one million views. That's pretty impressive, even in the viral world of Imgur. It just goes to show, the only thing people love more than a bold, public declaration of love is one that involves something simple to which we can all relate.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to work on a collage of my fiancé's best emojis.
