Default HELP--No base grommet...What to do?

I have recently ordered a new Hookah from a trusted site and it arrived today. Unfortunately, it arrived without a Base Grommet...It has all the other parts except for this large, completely necessary piece of rubber...Anyone have any ideas as to what I can use as a pseudo-grommet in the meantime?

They will be shipping me replacements later this week, but I would REALLY love to smoke tonight as I have guests coming over.

A wet paper towel and a lot of care. You don't want to let it wobble and tilt.

Electrical tape. Wrap the stem where the grommet goes until it's big enough to form a seal with the base.
