"How were the eggs?"

^^They were spectacular.

"Damn Danny, what have you been waiting for? Don't be afraid of it. Embrace the journey."

^^I actually was a little intimidated by starting this new journey, but now that I've gotten it out of the box, I'm less afraid!

"someone doesn't have the 10 year old on christmas morning mentality when a package comes like most of us do."

^^Good things come to those who wait

I've unwrapped everything, and I've set it up (see the attached pictures). Can you tell me what these two clear round things are in the last picture?

They're wide rubber bands, the type that usually come on heads of broccoli. You can use one or both as gaskets on the stem (between the stem and the base) in order to get an airtight seal. I usually tape the stem to the right thickness with athletic tape and then put a broccoli band over the tape to keep the edge from peeling up.

(between the stem and the base)

^^Are you referring to the stem at the top of the hookah, and the base at the bottom of the hookah bowl?

Also, what does this little knob on the hookah pipe do?

where the stem fits into the base (glass) to form a seal.

That's a purge valve. It allows you to clear harsh smoke from your base/vase by gently blowing into the hose. Also there is a little ball bearing in their that closes the valve when you are smoking/taking a pull form the hookah.

bowl: part at the top that tobacco goes in

Stem: long bit in the middle

base/vase: big thing at the bottom that holds water

purge valve: an opening with a ball bearing in it and a screw on cap that can let air out but not in

not trying to be condescending, just thought you might like some terminology cleared up in explicit terms

The broccoli band should act as a gasket to form an air-tight seal between the mouth of the glass vase and the metal part of the stem that fits into it. There should also be a smaller gasket between the hose and the hose port, and one between the bowl and the bowl wiener. All three of these points should be air-tight.

Everyone, thanks for your help!

The first hookah session went really well!

A (male) friend and I experimented with some of the supplies that I bought.

Here are my key takeaways from the session:

1. Pack the bowl: During the first part of the smoking session we started getting a really harsh smoke from the pipe, mainly because we didn't have enough hookah in the bowl.

2. Cut the coal in half: One coal is enough! Just take one cube and cut it in half before you cook it. Put it on opposite sides of the tin-foil on the top of the bowl, and that should be enough for you to get some really good pulls.

I will post some pictures of our session soon enough, and I will also post some of my future engagements with the hookah :-)

Congrats!

I'm not sure what you're doing to get harsh smoke. One coal doesn't sound like very much heat, and in an under-packed bowl, you should be having pretty much the opposite problem. Take some pictures next time you set it up and maybe we can help trouble-shoot any issues.

If you get bored with the eggs, here's something else to try. It's easy to make, inexpensive, and women love it.
