大家好,欢迎收听 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目,我是佳莹。

Neil
… and me, Neil. Are you OK? You look really stressed!

Jiaying
别提了,今天我去公园吃午饭,却找不到我带的坚果了。就在这个时候,我把偷走我零食的小偷逮了个正着!

Neil
Was it Rob?

Jiaying
No, it wasn’t. I looked everywhere, and lo and behold, a squirrel had stolen them.

Neil
What? What did you say? Lower and below?

Jiaying
不是的,Neil!我说的是 “lo and behold”,我们经常用它来感叹或者引出一件事情让人出乎意料的部分,相当于我们常说的 “真想不到”。

Neil
Ah… that makes sense – like a strange coincidence – like the other day, I wanted some biscuits, but lo and behold, guess who’d eaten them all!

Jiaying
Rob! Let’s talk about some other surprising twists after these examples.

Examples
I was just thinking about my uncle when, lo and behold, he rang.

I’d completely forgotten to finish just one task, and lo and behold, it was the only one my boss asked for!

My wife was so angry the other day. Lo and behold, it was her birthday and I’d forgotten.

Neil
So, what happened after you saw the squirrel had stolen your nuts in the park?

Jiaying
Well, I said to the squirrel – ‘Hey you, give me back my nuts’, and lo and behold, the squirrel returned my food!

Neil
That’s amazing! That squirrel must have felt really guilty!

Jiaying
Yes, he apologised. He didn’t mean to steal my nuts, but he needed them. Lo and behold, he has a young family. So, I gave him the nuts. Guess what happened next?

Neil
Hmm…the squirrel asked if you’d like to join him for dinner?

Jiaying
Don’t be ridiculous, Neil! He ran off!

Neil
Oh, OK. That’s not as surprising as I imagined!

Jiaying
Bye, Neil.

Neil
Bye.
