“What to do when Bill Gates sends you a 30lb Pusheen” is not a headline you read every day, but for one lucky Redditor, it’s a sentence that will forever define Christmas 2017.
It’s well-known that Microsoft mogul Bill Gates is a regular participant in Reddit’s annual Secret Santa exchange, and each year, he showers his giftee with the most amazing holiday treasures one could imagine. He didn’t disappoint when cat-enthusiast VietteLLC showed up as his match; the haul she received on Wednesday morning can only be described as an absolute blowout, and included – you guessed it – a gigantic plush Pusheen, which Gates posed with in a photo to prove the legitimacy of the source. “The best part?” She wrote on Reddit after unboxing the delivery. “Knowing that at some point during my workweek, I was drinking coffee, writing a boring email, and Bill Gates was somewhere having a professional photo taken with a jumbo Pusheen and writing me notes about cats.”
Scroll down to see what she got, and cross your fingers that next year, Bill Gates just might be the one playing Father Christmas for you!
