I (37M) was about, maybe, 10 years old that time. My sister is only a year older than me and she loves to belittle, bully, and make fun of me at every opportunity. To this day, I still love my sister as a family.

那时我大概10岁左右。我姐姐只比我大一岁,她喜欢抓住一切机会轻视我,欺负我,取笑我。直到今天,我仍然爱我的姐姐,并视她为亲人。


So, one day outside on Saturday morning, I rode my bicycle and I saw a garter snake on ground. It was small one-footer pencil thin snake. I picked up the snake into one of cargo pockets in my pant and rode back to home for lunch. As I was nearing to home, I took snake out and placed into our empty mailbox. I ran into house and I looked through window for mail to arrive. My sister saw me and she became suspicious. She shouted to mom that she''s getting mail and ran toward to our mailbox. I watched through window with huge smile the snake jumped into her romper and it crawled out through one of her legs.

所以,有一天周六早上,我在外面骑自行车,看到地上有一条束带蛇,大约一英尺长。我把蛇放进裤子的一个口袋里,然后骑车回家吃午饭。当我快到家的时候,我把蛇拿出来,放进我们空的邮箱里。我跑进家里,透过窗户看邮件是否到达。我姐姐看到我,就起了疑心。她向妈妈大喊她要去收信,然后跑向我们的邮箱。我微笑着透过窗户看着那条蛇跳进她的游泳裤,然后从她的一条腿爬了出来。

Fast forward today, my sister won''t open mailbox anymore. Her husband continues to assure my sister that there''s no snake in Alaska.

直到今天,我姐姐再也不敢打开邮箱了。她的丈夫向我的姐姐保证阿拉斯加没有蛇。
