Re: your biggest disaster?
We were smoking hookah in my basement and I had my 10" on a wooden tray type thing that holds drinks on top of my brand new, huge, all leather, cocktail ottoman. A friend of mine grabbed a hose to take a pull and stood up and backed away as he had it in his mouth. Toppled the hookah, big black burn mark on the wooden tray, big leather burn mark on the ottoman. Nothing on carpet though, although I would have rather it burnt the carpet.
