Epic Fail

Question

I haven't smoked my hookah in forever, and its a pretty nice day out, so I decided that I'd break it out. Well when I was taking the vase to the sink to wash it, I dropped it and it broke.

Dude, it does happen to the best of us. Just the other week, I thought "you know, I'm always super careful, but I'm going to pull my hookah out of the car by the stem and set it on the ground... surely it will make it"

Well, you know what happened, and the Regal is out of commission until my syrian bases come in a few days.

Lol, interesting enough, when I tried to light up my very first hookah in my new lounge in the middle of construction, I had soooo many technical errors. First, I realized I left my lighter and tongs at home. So I took my coal by a pair of pliers and went around the neighboring shops asking if someone had a lighter. Finally found one, lit the coal through the windy day, and dropped it crossing the street to go back. I salvaged a half, and put it on top of another QL and blew and blew. Nothing. So I was like, fine... I'll just go BUY a lighter. I ran out and came back in 5 min, only to find the coal fully lit. So I was like ok... tried to pick it up with the pliers and it crushed underneath the pressure, and coals flew everywhere. I guess that was the Christening of the lounge, cause I made the first coal burn in the hardwood. Also got some embers on my vinyls :-/ So I put a 3rd QL in the tray and lit that one, then went to pack the bowl. Packed the bowl and put it on top and it broke. So then I was like, alas I have this tiny Egyptian bowl! So I packed the shisha into the Egyptian (held about half the amount) then slapped foil on it, put it on top, and finally started to enjoy it for about 30-45 min before my wife called me home for dinner.

Not a good omen.

The biggest problem is that its my only hookah. I may or may not be able to get a new vase tomorrow. I hope I can get a new vase before I get my hookah freak blend off shisha

Ugh. I hate that moment. I've never had a base fully smash on me bu I have had a couple of them crack while working with them and it is disheartening to say the least. Now I have backup bases for pretty much all of my hookahs. lol.

The part that pisses me off the most is that if I didn't try to catch it, it probably wouldn't have broken. When I tried catching it, I smashed it into my metal heater. If I had let it fall, it would have fallen about three feet onto carpet. At least it was a cheap hookah, not an expensive one.
