雅思口语part2话题卡：Describe a time when you were surprised to meet a friend 描述一次令人惊讶的相遇/一次你见到朋友感到很惊奇的经历
这道雅思口语话题卡在四五年前出现过一次，如今，换了个马甲重新出现在这个季度当中。曾经的关键词是someone（包含陌生人），而本次的重点是a friend。因此，老烤鸭建议大家最好表述与自己朋友相关的经历，避免跑题的现象。除此之外，surprise的英文定义为：a brief emotional state experienced as the result of an unexpected significant event。也就是说，是一种未预料到的情况。这类情况可以是积极的一方面，也可以写消极的一方面，题干不做具体要求，大家可以自由发挥。
Describe a time when you were surprised to meet a friend
You should say:
When it was
Who you met
Where it was
And explain why you were surprised to meet him/her
A time I felt quite surprised to meet a friend happened about three months ago when the lockdown for the Covid-19 was completely over in our city.
The person I met was my bestie, Li, whom I haven’t seen for ages since the outbreak of the virus. I remember it was a sunny weekend in that month, but I couldn’t remember clearly which date it was. This article is from Laokaoya website. I bumped into him while I was waiting in a line to grab a meal at Meizhoudongpo, which was a popular local restaurant of the southern Chinese food.
The restaurant was located near the third ring road in our city, and it was pretty close to our campus, but I was not a regular visitor to it. You know what, I was dumbfounded when I saw him because I didn’t expect his presence at this place which was quite far from where he was living.
Well, another reason why I was so surprised to meet him was that his appearance was totally different, especially his hair, which was way longer than the last time I saw him. You know I thought that he could trim his hair instead of having it cut by the barbers due to the pandemic. However, he didn’t and turned out to be an artistic looking. No offense to him, but I just didn’t get accustomed to his looking.
