Postby Earnest » Mon Sep 04, 2017 6:24 am

Ok...I came back with a little puzzle...the statement is quite vague. As usual if hints are needed, please just ask

"Uooooooooo...yeahhh I'll do it again! After all it is not so boring to save our sinful soul !!!"

Is the speaker H/A/M?
Is the speaker talking to one person? More than one person? No one at all?
Does this take place in a church?
Does the speaker hold a religious occupation? Is the speaker a priest? Monk?
Is the solution a joke?

The thing the speaker will do: they expect it to save their soul? Literally, like from damnation? To save their life? To make them a better person? Do they expect it to save another person?

Is "doing it": confessing? performing a good deed? apologizing? Doing something immoral? Illegal? Does the action involve another person?

Does the again imply that the speaker has done the "it" before? If so, do they do something else between doing "it"?
