Default Using hookah as a verb.

Anyone else find yourself using the word as a verb? "Hey let's hookah" and such?

I keep doing it more and more, and it makes me feel awkward after I say it, because it just feels grammatically wrong.

I don't do that with the word hookah, but I do with other words sometimes, like karaoke. Ex. "Let's go karaoke" instead of "Let's go to karaoke"

me and my friends got tired of using hookah as a verb so we made up "smookah". it means smoking hookah. To be used like: "lets go smookah."

Default Re: Using hookah as a verb.

I think I do it because I don't like the connotations of the word 'smoke'
When describing how something smokes, I notice most tend to use the word 'clouds' which I have also started doing more. Can't really say "Let's go cloud a hookah" so I think it formed there for me ha.
I just don't like the word 'smoke'

I say that when im too drunk to say "i am smoking hookah" . you know around the point where all the words in a sentence begin to become one really long incomprehensible word.
