世界真小
Small World

【intro 今日导读】

Most of the time, the planet Earth feels like a big place. It can be difficult to truly understand what’s happening in countries that are far away from us. Sometimes it’s even difficult to understand what’s happening in other parts of our own city.

There are times, though, when it can feel like we're living in a very small world. It usually happens when we're not expecting it, which is why the feeling is so incredible. Maybe you see a friend in another country, when you didn't know that he was taking a vacation. Perhaps he's in your favorite restaurant in this country, eating your favorite dish. Or maybe he's having dinner with another close friend that you didn't realize that he even knew. Now that's living in a small world. And it happens all the time!

Sara didn't know that Kellie knows Gary. Kellie knows Marni, too. Of course Gary and Marni know each other, too. Who knew? Read on in today’s surprising English lesson.

【Dialogue 情景对话】

Sara_R:  Gary, I have a package for… Wait. What are you doing here?

Kellie:  Oh my gosh! Small world. Do you deliver packages to these guys?

Gary:  For the last six months at least, right?

Sara_R:  Six months exactly. How did you know that?

Gary:  I don't know. Just a good guess.

Sara_R:  You still haven't explained why you're here.

Kellie:  Oh, right. My friend Marni, the one who knew about the apartment we want… she used to work here. She's out getting us some coffee.

Sara_R:  I know Marni. She used to always try to set me up with someone.

Gary:  Really? Who was that?

Sara_R:  I can't remember. This is too funny.

Gary:  So, tell us about being a bike messenger. How does it work?

Sara_R:  It's pretty straightforward. My supervisor texts me an address. I ride there to pick something up. And they give me the address where I need to take the package. I let my supervisor know when I'm done, and it starts all over again.

Kellie:  I feel like bike messengers are usually guys. Do they give you a hard time for being a woman?

Sara_R:  There are a lot of women who work for my company. It's pretty standard now.

Gary:  That's so cool.

Sara_R:  Look, I have to go. Talk to you soon, Kellie.

Kellie:  I can't wait.

Gary:  So, you and Sara are going to be roommates? That really is a small world.

Kellie:  Yep. And you have a crush on Sara, don't you?

Gary:  Oh, please. I have work to do.
