Default R.I.P. My KM

Haven't been on here for a while(haven't been able to smoke my hookah much lately either ) but the night before last, I decide to get my hookah out and I've finally got some more shisha and coals. I'm smoking with a friend and it's going pretty nicely having missed my rig much over the past few weeks when disaster strikes. Said friend goes to grab some Mtn Dews and comes back, paying almost no attention and running straight into my hookah.
In the most heartbreaking explosion of water, fire and glass, I see my hookah fall and crash into the floor of my porch, burning 2 massive round holes in the carpet and leaving a big stained spot from the water(had been smoking for a while and the water was getting pretty cloudy by this point). Now I'm waiting for him to pay me back so I can get a new base, but the rest seems to be fine(save for the massive burns in the carpet). I miss my rig already, I've been wanting to smoke so bad in the past 2 days I'm considering fashioning a spare liquor bottle into a makeshift hookah for the time being.
On a positive note, it finally gave me a good enough reason to put an order in at Hookahstore to get more shisha and coals :P

I've just got the standard Egyptian bowl that came with it(3 actually, lol) but it survived just fine, not even a scratch oddly enough.

while you're ordering, or even if you've already ordered, you should look into a vortex bowl

After your friend pays for the base, he will know the value of a KM (ain't cheap haha), and hopefully will think twice before running to get dollar-a-can sodas =P

Only a flesh wound? That's a pretty hard core flesh wound. And one that takes a very long time to heal!! His first hookah shatters before his eyes and still in the waiting on ordering a new one!!

goej, for your makeshift, I hope you've got a plastic bottle. Glass would be really hard to use. The mouth of your vase was HUGE. I'm sure that there is NO liquor bottle on earth that has that big of a lip to set your stem into. And you'd need a drill to put holes into that. Plastic bottles you can burn with a hot needle and shove in some straws and use a fruit bowl.

Hate hearing about your hookah.

Your making your friend pay you back for a Base he accidentally broke? I dont think id ever make a friend pay me back for anything they accidentally broke. Unless they were extremely drunk and retarded and through a brick through my Big screen or something. but for a 20-30 bucks naaa never. If they insisted they pay for it, Id tell them just match me half the price.

Bummer on the loss. Accidents do happen, though. At least the stem wasn't damaged, bent, etc. Hope you don't have to wait too long for the new vase to get there. When you get it get some of that yellow, caution, plastic tape and make a warning barrier around yoru set up. LOL People, in their bovine nature, will just flow around your hookah then. J/K Smoke happy.

shit where i live a 12 pack cost 14.50. and a two letter cost 7.00 thats what i get though for living in rural alaska. sorry about your base. that has happened to me too. some drunk chick walked away with the hose in her hand and pulled it over and cracked the base. i was able to duck tape it to finish the session but ultimately had to replace the base. she paid me for it though.

I have two crappy hookahs, will be ordering a KM in a week or two, have a vortex for it already, and a cool hose in the mail on the way for it, and once I get the perfect base I imagine if someone breaks it I will be crying lol, it will be like my second kid once its all together lol. Maybe I should second guess my choice on multiple hoses and sharing.....MINE......lol
