Wow. I really do have a short attention span.

True story?

Location relevant?

Religion relevant?
Any other person relevant?

RECAP:
This is a true story about me, Kyeannpepper. It is relevant how long something took, and also extremely slightly how long I thought it took. Another person is very, VERY slightly relevant. They would be a friend.

Watching your puzzles to see how long it takes you to answer questions? This is so close I'm going to post the
***************SPOILER***************

Whenever I post the answer to a question, it seems to take forever for it to actually post. Or at least, that's what I thought. Then I watched a 16-second video while it was loading...and the post was done a good 5 seconds before the video ended. Which made me think, Wow, I can't even pay attention to one page for 10 seconds! I really do have a short attention span!
This puzzle's shiny gold star goes to Wildcard for the solve! Everyone else that worked on this puzzle gets bonus points!
Don't forget to look for my NEW puzzle at the bottom of the page!
