My take on Take is up at EDF today so I hope you'll find time to take a look. This one sprang from a TEFL session about 20 years back. The student asked a simple question. What does 'take' mean?
An exercise for you. On a sheet of paper write down every phrase you can think of containing the word take.
You'll begin to get my drift.
Mashid, thanks for the story, dear. I hope you're well and settled.
