8 | Hot Dog Mailed Between Sisters for 54 Years

(Keenesburg, Co.) - Flora Zimbelman says it all started 54 years ago when she put an uncooked hot dog in her sister?s suitcase.

"I don?t know what made me do it. The devil I guess," she said.

Flora?s sister, Rose, found the hot dog when she opened the suitcase back up in Idaho, where she lived at the time.

"She mailed it back to me telling me to keep my garbage at home," said Flora.

The game was on.

In the years that followed, Flora would find a way to sneak the hot dog back into Rose's life. And Rose would find another way to sneak it back to Flora.

"I found it under my pillow once, I found it in between the drapes and once I found it in the kitchen drawer," said Flora.

Flora still has that hot dog. It looks just about as disgusting as you might expect.

Yet, earlier this year, Flora's sister, best friend, and victim of her continuous pranks, lost her battle with cancer.

Flora says she misses her friend, and even though it?s difficult to look at, she?ll still show you the hot dog and tell you the story behind it.
