Nothing like breaking your bong on a marble bathroom floor in a hotel. If I didn't have a nice little glow from the evening out and a couple of cocktails I would've been very sad. I just shrugged it off. I was bummed but what can ya' do? Cry? I may have in the past. I don't know how many bongs and or pipes I've busted. That is why I don't spend a fortune on glass. I'm a klutz. I do believe the main cause of my bowl breakage was having a bowl in my lap then forgetting it was there then standing up and crash. Oops! Stoned again
I was watching a video on YouTube and this guy (The Weed Nerd) said he was tired of breaking bongs and found one with real thick glass - I thought damn, that's what I need. I started to look for a replacement and I spotted one bong I liked, a 12 inch beaker style by Sky glass for $99 but I thought I'd stop in and see what they had at my regular go-to store for my smoking accessories. When I went in I told the guy exactly what I was looking for, a beaker style with 5mm thickness and an 18 mm downstem hole. I looked at a few and then I spotted the one. It was a little taller than I was looking for and had a 14mm downstem opening. I asked if he had an adapter and he did. I really wanted it yet I knew a new bong was not figured into my budget . I called my baby up, he was in a meeting but it was ok to talk for a minute. He had given me a beautiful robe for Xmas but it was white and I don't do white cept' for what goes under my clothes. We were going to return it and find something else as I received another robe (plum) from his Mother. I crossed my fingers and asked him if I could get the bong in lieu of the robe (he bought it at Macy's). He said yes and we hung up and I was so happy I yelled joyfully and very loudly... "Yay! I got a new bong!!!" a few times and the other customers congratulated me and some clapped. I also did a little jig.
Here's the beast! With water it weighs 3.6 pounds. He's holding it : )
The downstem came with it and he gave me a free adaptor and replaced the small bowl with a bigger one.
I was having bong WITHDRAWLS so my gem of a guy rigged up my broken Roor bong so I wouldn't go without bong hits until I got a new one. It looks funky as hell but it worked...
That's desperate! I decided that it's good to have a spare and will add another one soon. I was checking out some nice inexpensive bubblers online and might order one of those. I don't need a big collection of bongs. There's some people that have a lot of them. Perhaps that's a hobby of theirs- collecting bongs. I also think some do it to be cool and show off. To each their own! If I knew for sure that it wouldn't end up broken I might spend more on a bong but until someone develops my idea for BONG BUMPER (pads) I 'll spend up to $100, maybe even $125. I'd rather spend $75-100 and buy nice accessories for it like cool bowls, ash catchers, quartz nail, domeless nail etc.
New Bong- Nasty Oil Rig
There was no way I was going to insert my disgusting oil rig into my new bong...
I'm a fan of Siwika and was happy to acquire one of theirs bongs at a decent price. Puff Puff Pass!
keep it lit!
