Feifei
大家好,欢迎来到 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我是冯菲菲。

Rob
And I’m Rob. Hey Feifei, feeling hungry?

Feifei
Rob, they smell amazing!

Rob
Almost there. We’re having a special treat today – waffles!

Feifei
Rob 正在做 waffles 华夫饼,就是那种看上去像格子饼的点心。

Rob
Absolutely! My favourite. But what are we going to put on top of them?

Feifei
Oh that’s simple: strawberries and syrup. What about you?

Rob
OK, but I’m not so sure. I mean, I used to always love them with honey and bananas. But they do taste amazing with melted chocolate, or with cream. You know, I recently tried one with peanut butter: not a good experience. I guess strawberries would be worth trying? Or mango? But only if the mangoes are fresh…

Feifei
Rob?

Rob
Yes?

Feifei
Can you stop waffling on?

Rob
Ah, very clever. Perfect time to use that phrase! Yes, I do need to stop waffling on.

Feifei
这个由华夫饼 “waffle” 加上介词 “on” 组成的动词短语 “waffle on” 的意思是唠唠叨叨的说了一堆没有任何意义的事情。

Rob
Mm, I am sometimes guilty of that. Let’s hear a few more examples.

Examples
I think I did really badly in the interview. I wasn’t sure how to answer the questions, so I just waffled on.

Meetings with Frank are frustrating. He always waffles on about unimportant things. Someone needs to have a word with him.

I used to find her blog really interesting and inspiring, but these days she just waffles on about her pet tortoise.

Feifei
这里是 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。这集节目里教给大家的表达是 “waffle on”,它可以描述一个人絮絮叨叨,瞎扯了一堆没用的事儿。At least we don’t waffle on in this programme, do we Rob?

Rob
Well, I must admit that sometimes people have said I do talk rather a lot, especially when it’s about travel or languages… which reminds me I really should book my next holiday… I’ve been considering Croatia, though I…

Feifei 
Rob?

Rob
Oh yeah, am I waffling on?

Feifei
I’m afraid so.

Rob
Ooh, it’s waffle time! 

Feifei
Great. Hopefully these tasty waffles will keep you quiet for a while.

Rob
Are you saying the waffles will stop me waffling on?

Feifei
Yup! Now, enough talk… Oh, these waffles are delicious.

Rob
Mm, not bad, eh?!

Feifei
Bye.

Rob
Bye-bye.
