I was settled down in my usual spot on my couch in my comfy Pj’s and warm soaks sitting with my laptop in hand when this episode appeared on my TV screen, “The Thirteenth Step.” I was already blogging on the stinkin-thinkin site posting and reading emails from 13 stepped victims who reach me here. As the opening credits continued to roll I ran to my garage/studio where my actor husband was playing video games. I said ” OMG you gotta come here and watch this episode. He looked at me like a good husband and said “..umm not now honey.” I ran back into the house quickly as to not miss a second. I guess I forgot for that moment that I have Time Warner Cable and a DVR and can rewind at any time. Cool feature but I hate doing that… so even though I watch Criminal Minds every week …loving this show….I heard a rumor that someone who works on the show is a member. I don’t know for sure.
I just know both the writing and the acting are great. And since I am the go to girl for AA bullshit and crap when it comes to rape and 13 stepping -I have become obsessed with these types of shows.
But trust me the level of payback in this one is phenominal.
If anyone has heard that stupid phrase “what’s your part in it” you should know that anyone in AA who says that should be smacked hard in the face. And every child victim, sexual or otherwise needs to know that Alcoholics Anonymous was never talking to children or victims when nutty Bill Wilson wrote his memoir aka the Big Book, it’s basic text.
So, have your hand ready to bitch slap any asshole who asks you what’s your part in it? Then run to a Smart Recovery meeting where they are actually sane.
