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。

Anyway, my sister often volunteered to get mails from mailbox outside of the house. She does this because she want to be the first to tell my parents that our school sent letter probably about suspension from bus or school for something I tried to hide from my parents.

无论如何,我姐姐经常自愿去房子外面的邮箱拿邮件。她这样做是因为她想第一个告诉我的父母,我们学校寄出的信可能是关于停运公共汽车或学校停课的消息,这些我都不愿意告诉父母。

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。
