Unhappy No hookah for me tonight :(

So tonight I setup my hookah like normal. I fill up the base w/ ice and water, fill ice bucket w/ ice, start the coals on my electric stove, perfectly measure out my shisha w/ my digital scale, pack bowl w/ shisha and put foil on it.

Just as the coals are almost white, I put everything together. As I start to put on my hose, I realize my hose grommet is missing. I put my now ready coals in my ash tray and search my place for the grommet for about 20 minutes.

The grommet was nowhere to be found. I think my cats must have stole it while I was cleaning my hookah last night.

I put out my coals in water and put my shisha back into the container from which it came. It's too late to go to a smoke shop and I don't have any backups.

I'll hit up the smoke shops tomorrow. Hopefully they stock them around here. I'll be sure to buy a couple of backups.

You could've used some wet newspaper, toilet paper, paper towel, or cardboard as a temporary grommet

If that ever happens again, get some damp paper towel or newspaper and use that for a grommet. I often misplace mine (and even the replacements) and atleast ONCE a week are using PT for grommets - bowl or hose, sometimes even the base grommet!

Sucks you lost the grommet... my cat leaves mine alone, but she LOVES messing with the hoses.

I've said it a bunch of times .. but for you I will say it again ..

Get some THIN cardboard, and soak it in water .. then use that as a grommet, works great! Or you can use paper towel, toilet paper, tape, etc .. you are not just limited to the traditional grommet. Do what you got to do to smoke!

Yeah, I thought about doing the electrical tape thing but thought that would piss me off more to see electrical tape on my new Razan Sultan hose.

Hadn't thought of the cardboard and newspaper methods. Will try those if this happens again.

Do the standard smoke shops (head shops) usually carry grommets or do I need to go to a hookah specialty shop? There are a TON of head shops in Tucson.

Got some new grommets today. They aren't silicone like my last one, but they work. Back in business! Smoked some AF Grenadine tonight.
