current mood

the australian phrase “leave it with me”

it could mean

“i shall spend some time by myself and ponder this new piece of information you just presented to me and return to you later with a response”

or

“i do not wish to offer a response to this new piece of information you just presented to me and we shall never speak of it again”

i am really not sure which one is correct

meanwhile, i'm in the middle of lockdown week 3, politics in this country has gone sideways, and i'm feeling woefully inadequate because i just found out a friend in the US got nominated for an emmy (to be clear, i am very happy for them).
