Default SUPER FAIL!

I had just lit up some coals and started smoking some AF mint when my boyfriend asked me to go outside and help him hang Christmas lights. Since I had just lit up the hookah I moved it outside onto the coffee table (we have a couch and coffee table on our porch) and started to help him hang. He set a ladder up on one of the walls and put some lights on it to hold them temporarily, then tried to hang the opposite side of the strand up on the porch ceiling. He tugged too hard and the ladder came crashing down right on top of my hookah. The coals flipped off to opposite sides of the porch, the bowl came up off the grommet and landed down-side-down on the porch, basically crushing it. The tray and tray holder on the hookah are FUCKED. They're so bent that they're basically worthless.

On the bright side, however, I have a new KM stem coming via UPS tomorrow. I also have a starcut base, and there was no moving that sucker. It's completely safe. I do have another mod bowl, so the bowl loss is negligible as well. So I guess this just leaves me with a very bent Chinese, and a funny story to tell. That, and I'll have to wait 'til my KM gets here tomorrow to smoke again.

That is quite a bummer. However, you know, had he not broken the hookah, you'd have two hookahs! You owe it to yourself to buy a second hookah. As it is, you're short one! Yeah, that seems like a logical justification!

Thanks for the generosity Hayter. I have another one, though. I think my next bowl purchase will be an egyptian or a vortex, 'cause I just can't get nakhla to smoke right with my mod, and my phunnel is so big I hardly use it.

The only part that's really broken is the stem, and I bought the KM stem to replace it anyway. My order was big enough that I should be getting the free statue hookah with it, too. Hm.

oh the couch is already junky, that's why it's outside. :P Our dog tore it to crap, and it's been rained on since we put it out there lol. Just nice to have somewhere to sit and smoke if I want to go outside.

He should also (hint, hint) add in a couple of extra phunnel/vortex bowls and some smokin' stuff, too.

Oh faded come on, you knew the new KM was coming, so you needed an excuse to get rid of the old one, the boyfriend just happen to be at the perfect time and place to "accidentally" break it. Who tripped the ladder?


I kid I kid of course, but hey at least you have something better now.

If I wanted to get rid of my old one, I would have done a better job. The pipe is technically still smokable if I just forget the ash tray, actually. Just don't want to bother with it, now that it has bad juju!

I'm guessing after smoking from the KM, you won't miss the Chinese.

Well At least you can now use the Chinese stem as a weapon on the BF without worrying to damage it and as to the Moasel lost it was only AF so no real loss you were warned that the Gods of Nakhla are very jealous and protective of their Hookahs and should the Bowl have had Nakhla in it this would not have happened

This man speaks the truth. Had the bowl been filled with Nakhla, the ladder would have exploded upon impact with the hookah. This is because Nakhla packs the power of 1000 Chuck Norris roundhouse kicks.

Sorry to hear about the tragedy! Coincidence that you had the KM stem on the way?
