My Captain and His Lizard

January 11, 2019

My Captain has always loved reptiles. He always talked about how he wanted one, how he had one as a kid, how much he loved his childhood pet. Every time I heard this I tightened up. I was so nervous this would somehow add to my list of responsibilities. Before surrendering, I always felt like this. Like my partner making decisions would really only result in me cleaning up after those decisions. I was so wrong. After months of hard work I’m less anxious and much more trusting of my partner, and even though we haven’t talked about this change, I’m sure he feels similarly.

Today we were at the pet store buying cat food. He sees this tiny little lizard. He shows him to me, he tells me all about the type of lizard. Everything. He tells me he loves how sweet his little face looks. I see my man losing his shit about this lizard. I know in my heart we are getting the lizard. I can feel my old self getting anxious, and then I remember again to stfu and let my Captain take care of us like he has done over and over again. He’s never let me down, he’s never been irresponsible. So I just remember to smile and enjoy this moment of happiness. As soon as I made that decision, I was happy. This lizard did have a cute little face. I did want my man to be happy. What the fuck was I anxious about?

He looks at me and asks me if he can get this lizard. I tell him he calls the shots and I give him a smile.

He looks at me like I just handed him a million dollars. He takes me out to lunch, makes a list of things we need, then we go back to the pet store and adopt the lizard. He names him. He loses composure and jumps up and down in aisle and grabs me and holds me and says “I’m so excited.” I can’t think of another time I’ve seen him so overcome with joy. He tears up in the store and tells me even more about his childhood pet and how he’s so happy to have a lizard again.

We get in the car and drive home and he gives the lizard a name. He looks in my eyes and tells me he loves me. He starts helping me with my chores so we can put together the lizard habitat together.

I am so lucky. I am lucky I came to my senses and stopped acting like his mother and started being his woman. I am so lucky to have a man like this to lean on. I’m so lucky I got to see my man happy like a child again. I can’t believe how much this lifestyle has changed and improved my life. I am so thankful.

I love this story! Great job letting go and going with the flow. It’s not so easy for some of us but so worth it for those good feels!! WTG!!

[–]probably_wont12 points13 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

That's awesome to hear. Keep up the good work, being the kind of woman he will never ever want to lose

[–]Scorpioprincess839 points10 points  (8 children) | Copy Link

That is so sweet!! What did he name the lizard? My husband wants a pig someday lol.

[–]MightyNerdyCrafty11 points12 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

Apparently, pygmy pigs aren't; they're just young, and will grow to 'big baconater' size sooner than you expect.

So don't fall for anything like that, either of you!

[–]Scorpioprincess832 points3 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

Yep I’ve heard in a lot is cases the cute little teacup piggy turns into a giant farm animal! We’ll definitely have to do our research!

[–]WarViper13377 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Just an fyi there are no such thing as micro, pygmy, or teacup pigs. Those cute pictures they show around the interent are of piglets that will grow to a very large size. Even potbelly pigs can tip the scales at over 200 pounds if they are properly fed. The few adult pigs that are really small are actually starved and their growth is severely stunted and they will suffer many health issues as a result.

Honestly shouldn't get a pygmy Pig/Teacup Pig either way. They are bred for Human convenience which is cruel, they often have health issues because of it. The same is true for Pigs who are bred for Meat and are really fat and huge, can't walk properly etc. We are a cruel species.

I'd say adopt/rescue a Pig, don't support any of the industries that are so cruel to other living beings.

Right now his name is Ernie but now he’s wondering if he looks like an Ernie. I’ll post pictures later!

I had a “pet” (farm animal that my dad led me to believe was my pet) pig growing up. He was so sweet, just like a good dog. They bite sometimes though! But if we ever had big property I would get one again. We have chickens now, they’re also so sweet.

[–]Scorpioprincess831 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Cute name! Aww yeah I’ve heard pigs are smart and loving like dogs. We have had pet hedgehogs for the last few years, so I guess we’re fans of unconventional pets!

[–]vspookygirl[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

If you ever post pics of the hedgehogs please let me know!! Holy crap that sounds cool

[–]LookingForEquanimity4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

My god that’s cute. All over a little lizard.

[–]Hershiekopper3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Aw! We love a Lizard King

[–]ZegiknieEndorsed Contributor2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

As long as you are prettier than the lizard, I guess this could work...

;-) kidding. Really nice!

So sweet!

What kind of lizard and what's its name? Don't leave me in suspense!

[–]vspookygirl[S] 5 points6 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

A green anole! A very small little guy. My partner wanted to name his Ernie originally but now is wondering if he really looks like an Ernie. I want to post pictures but I’m waiting until we have the tank all set up

[–]WarViper13371 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Those are easy to care for once you get them set up.

[–]RubyWooToo3 Stars0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

Aww, congratulations, lizard mommy!

[–]vspookygirl[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

That’s my next account name right there

[–]angel-kisses0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

I had a couple of those when I was in elementary school and I loved them so much! They are super easy to take care of as long as you have the right tank, heat lamp, etc and mine lived about 7 years

I thought lizard meant something else.

[–]LateralThinker133 Stars0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Well done.

[–]TheTyke0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

This is lovely. Animals, all creatures, are family. Sounds like your Husband feels the same. Hope you all have a lovely life together.

[–]vspookygirl[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

This really touched me, thank you. I wish the same to you. Thank you for being so kind.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
