Is there anything more cathartic than going online and stumbling across a smiling gecko? I've come to the realization that there probably isn't because every time I look at this adorable reptile, I find myself grinning like an absolute idiot.
Pictured by its owner with a toy gecko, the real creature looks none-the-wiser to its authenticity and hasn't stopped smiling since being introduced to his new friend.
Now ardent BBFs, the media has had a field day over this story ever since YouTuber Taylor Nicole Dean picked up on the Instagram photos and shared them with her 73k Twitter followers.
We don't know about you, but if reincarnation exists, I want to be a gecko with just a toy for company.
If you can be that happy with a fricking toy then you're set for life, right?!
