  • In the time of the Jin Dynasty there was a man named Yue Guang. He was very fond of drinking. One day, he invited a friend to his house to drink together. Suddenly, his friend saw the reflection of a snake swimming in his cup. He was so frightened that he became ill and went to bed after getting home. No doctor could cure him. Yue Guang went to see him and asked why he was sick. When he found out the reason, he pulled his friend out of bed immediately and took him to his house. Yue Guang made his friend sit where he sat before and poured him a cup of alcohol. He asked him, "Is there a snake reflection in the cup?" His friend replied that he could still see the snake reflection. So Yue took away a bow hanging on the wall and the "snake reflection" disappeared. His friend got well right away. "An illusory snake in a cup" is used to describe the situation of being frightened by something that isn't real.  晋朝有个叫乐广的人,爱喝酒。一天,他邀请朋友到家里来对斟(zhēn)对饮。忽然,朋友看见酒杯里有条蛇影在游动。他受了惊吓,回去便一病不起。请医服药,都无起色。乐广跑来看他,问明起病的缘由后,一把拉起朋友就往家走。他让朋友坐在原处,斟满酒问:“有蛇影吗?”“杯子里还有蛇影!”朋友大叫。乐广随手取下墙上的**。这次,“蛇影”不见了!“杯子里原来是**影呀!”朋友的病顿时好了!“杯**蛇影”现在用来比喻疑神疑鬼,妄自惊慌。
