Ralph Cook

When I was a kid we had this family friend, Ralph. Ralph was a pothead of massive proportions, and I always had a major crush on him. He was a flake and a perpetual teenager, even when he was in his thirties and forties, and a really, really nice guy.

When I got older, he and I had a fling that lasted about a year.. here's some TMI: He was the first man I slept with who, ya know, sent me over the edge, to put it politely. He was also the first man I ever fell in love with. I don't think the two were related, it just happened that way.

I just found out from another old family friend, Aaron, that Ralph died about seven years ago from a drug overdose.

I'm in tears.
