Default Bye Bye Vortex

So I was prepping a bowl of HH Chocolate and used my prebake method, I pulled the bowl out of the oven and readjusted it in the potholder and as I was doing that it flew out of my hand on to the ground. Thing is it was warm but cool enough to handle with my hand (which I should have done) but anyways, now it is in the bottom of my trashcan in about 5 pieces

Moment of silence

vshadowheart & i were smoking over at his place & he accidentally snagged his hose w/his foot pulling over his hookah which sent the vortex he was using straight to the tile floor obliterating it, but hey, at least it wasnt carpet so there were'nt any scorch marks from th coals lol

I almost dropped mine the other day on the concrete floor of our basement where I clean and keep my hookahs. I just about had a heart attack because I've broke 2 bowls in the past 2 months. Luckily it was only a MYA and an Egyptian bowl but I'm starting to miss the Egyptian

Your story aches my heart. I could almost cry for your loss. If I had your address I would send you one of those sympathy cards.

My Vortex was the best part of my 10" modern zen hookah (from hookahhub, branded by saharah smoke). And it to felt that follwing the flow of gravity was an irresistable experience, and not realizing that the force of a well grounded kitchen floor was more than enough to stop its rapid decent, thus ending its life. Like an ignorant animal, it accidentally killed itself.

I have been using my alien in the mean time. I'm going to order a vortex that will be back for when I get back from vacation next week. Prebaking is basically warming the bowl in the oven so you get good clouds immediately.
