[Conversations with Douglas cont’d.]
Me: “I feel like my recovery program is getting kind of stagnant.”
Douglas: “Are you sponsoring anyone right now?”
Me: “Not at the moment, no.”
Douglas: “Well, that might be something to think about. If you’re in a slump, working with another addict could pull you out of it.”
Me: “You know what? You’re right! I’m going to be a sponsor again.”
Douglas hasn’t responded, but I’m pretty sure it’s because he’s so awestruck by my commitment to both literalism and the modern NeoPagan movement that he’s can’t form coherent words. Or else I finally pushed him over the edge, and he’s facedown on the floor of a roadhouse. Hard to say with that one.
I should probably call his sponsor.
