@Reyn,
And you say you're from Vancouver???

Sounds to me like a bluff. Who in the world needs 1 cup of salt, especially Kosher? I mean, is he salting a cod or something?

@chai2,
no wonder they looked startled when I ran in....it's all coming back to me now. Bill said...

salt?

no, I didn't say salt. I said...um...sugar. wow, who asks for a cup of salt? I meant sugar.

I've "borrowed" stuff before - but usually I make my kids go to the neighbor and ask (reason 25 of why you have children) - stuff like vanilla (I was in the middle of making something and realized with horror I didn't have any vanilla. I've "borrowed" ice and conversely my neighbor has "borrowed" from us.

Granted I've never borrowed from the neighbor with tacky stuff.

Never had a neighbor wanted to borrow sugar, it's always 20 bucks.

(How unusual is this, seriously? I have regular borrowing-type contact with my neighbors -- they borrow from us, we borrow from them -- and have lived only one place where I didn't have that sort of contact.)

@sozobe,
I am glad I live where I do. There is a lot of borrowing back and forth, not only sugar, but books, help, china for parties, our guestroom, put something in the dryer if the neighbors is brooken down, help with children, driving somebody somewhere, good ideas the list is endless.

I never said we weren't back and forth with each other. I've just never had anyone borrow the cliche cup of sugar.

Actually, thinking about it, it's more like with Bill we exchange meals. Barbeque, stuffed salmon, pasta dishes.

With the neighbors 2 doors away, I go over there with davey crockett hats and hello kitty sunglasses, and they come over with books and videos.

The bf of another neighbor once gave me some homemade liquid fertilizer.

Borrowing is better then taking.
Same end result. You will never see that sugar.

Maybe you should try to borrow that cup of sugar back in a week or so?

He'll have gone to the grocery store by then.

@Reyn,
Does anyone ever return cups of sugar that they borrow?

@chai2,
Ah, I see.

We've had the cup of sugar go back and forth a few times, plus a bit of whatever the cup of sugar helped bake. (Hefty slice of cake, a few cookies.)

Borrowing is not quite the correct term, you're right.

Laughing Do many people bake anymore?

Maybe that cup of sugar was borrowed to put into a gas tank somewhere. Wink

@Reyn,
I like the way you think reyn. The old sugar in the gas tank trick.

Actually Wally likes to bake. He makes an extreme pound cake, in any flavor you want...Lemon, orange, anise, maple with nuts mixed in.

I can't bake to save my life.

@chai2,
I bake - I buy those cookie dough things that all you have to do is break them apart and bake. I rarely burn them.
