    Smile take one more question

    1. I'll take one more question.
    2. I'm working my way up to it.


    Does snetence 1 mean "I'll answer one more question from you?"
    Does snetence 2 mean "I'm working on it/I'm trying?"
    Thanks.

    Re: take one more question

    1: is usually said by someone at (say) a press conference to indicate that this is the last question they will take from the floor.

    2: yes, I think your interpretation makes sense.

    Re: take one more question

    I'm sorry, Anglika.
    I've tried many times to copy the right link but it just keep slipping away.
    I can't help but give up.
