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.

Jiaying
怎么了,Neil?You don’t sound that happy.

Neil
I’m not. I went to bed late and this morning, I overslept. It’s all been a bit of a rush and I haven’t even had time for my morning coffee.

Jiaying
Oh, dear. Neil, I guess that explains it.

Neil
Explains what?

Jiaying
Why you’re such a mess – your clothes are scruffy, you’ve got food stuck to your beard and your hair!

Neil
What about my hair?

Jiaying
It’s not very… tidy.

Neil
Am I having a bad hair day?

Jiaying
I think you are! 表达 “a bad hair day” 用 “起床后头发乱糟糟,怎么也打理不好” 的情况来比喻 “倒霉、不顺心的一天”。Don’t worry, Neil. You’re not alone. Listen to these people…

Examples
Today’s a bad hair day for me – I feel a complete mess.

Oh, no! I’ve got an interview today, and it’s a bad hair day.

I’m having a bad hair day – I think I’ll go back to bed!
