strange word

Postby Blanko » Tue 05.10.2005 7:35 pm

Hello!
教務準備室であんな事やそんな事、ゆっくりたっぷりさしつさされつ
I was wondering, what does さしつさされつ mean in this sentence... I somehow understand it overall, but can't really grasp the meaning of
さしつさされつ...

I'd be really grateful if someone could help!
Thank you!

さしつさされつ is an expression that means "to exchange sake cups."

So, in combination with ゆっくり and たっぷり, this would roughly mean:

"(They) slowly exchanged sake cups filled to the brim."
