Default 1st hookah casualty

Well....
it was bound to happen sooner or later

As careful as Ive tried to be, smoking in the house comes with assumed challenges and today I had my first mishap.
I set up my hookah near the couch.
Place it on top of cookie sheets to protect the carpet in case a stray coal or ember drops and then bring the coals over from the stove.
I heat up the coals in a small cast iron pan and then bring the pan over and put the coals on top of the hookah.
As I was bringing the pan over, I must not have remembered how unbelievably hot the handle gets and it started to burn my hand.
Writhing in pain I had to drop it somewhere fast and the closest place I could find was one of the throw pillows we keep on the couch.
There is now a nice imprint of the bottom of the pan on one side of the pillow.
I'm in big trouble when Wifey gets home.

Wow, that sucks. That's the problem with cast iron, though.

a pillow is cheap, you can change it easily, be glad, that you didnt destroy the couch

@ topic: saturday morning i got my new minihookah nargilem np-300. i was on a party, saturday evening ... ive drunken a bit too much, so i let my new hookah alone in the room. when i came back i saw it ... the base was broken and the dish was twisted.
im really glad to know some vendors, so i get a new base tomorrow (for free). the normal price for such a base is about 20-30 euro.

Hey those charcoal holders are they used to hold the coals from transferring from stove to bowl?

Man that's no good! Maybe turn the pillow over and tell the wife a funny story about burning the pillow then show it to her. Maybe she'll get a chuckle out of it. Worse she could do was holler at you which she will do anyway probably. LOL

Man, that stinks! Those coal holders are very nice to have. You can even jerry-rig one up yourself using a tuna fish can and a wire hangar.....

Just throw it away and tell her you don't know what happened to it. Got any kids you can blame it on?
