please can you tell me how i can write a short informal message to a friend asking to borrow something. what is the format of a message
(Not a teacher)
"Hey, how have you been/how are you/how's it going/what's up? I need ___ for ____ and was wondering if it would be okay to borrow yours and I'll give you it back as soon as I'm finished with it."
I guess it depends on what it is you are borrowing, but something like that is fine.
