Read and translate the text. Make grammar analysis of the verbs used here.


What is the worst thing which ever happened to you? The worst thing which ever happened to me was this. When I was a little girl, we had an old icebox which we kept in back of the house. It belonged to the people who had lived there before us. It was small and it had a door which was closed tight. There was a shelf which had held large pieces of ice. The shelf was always empty, for nobody used the icebox any more. The shelf made a little seat which was very comfortable. I liked to sit there. It was a habit which almost cost me my life. One day I was sitting in the icebox, and my brother closed the door. There was nobody who could let me out. Soon the air which was in the icebox was almost gone. I screamed and made noise until my mother opened the door. It was an experience which I will never forget. Now I have a great fear of closed places, and I always will .
