Experiments in Luxury

It's been no secret that Chris and I do so enjoy the physical comforts and luxuries this world can offer. Our current apartment is in the first complex we looked at when we were looking around about 6 months ago. Reason being? THey had a gazebo out over the small lake in the middle of the complex. In addition to the nice pool, covered jacuzzi, and massive sun deck. The apartments were huge, the amenities amazing. We have leather living room furniture. We're planning to get an HDTV and a surround system by the end of the summer. But on to what I was going to say...

At least once a week, we'll pack up the hookah and take a couple of bottles of wine or liquor out to the gazebo and chill for a few hours in the pleasantness of the atmosphere. It's beautiful way to wind down after any kind of day. So a few weeks ago I postulated that adding a small amount of mead, honey wine, to the water used in the hookah might work well. And boy did it ever. Of course, since there's alcohol in the smoke from the hookah, you'll find yourself under the influence swiftly, since instead of being digested and run through your blood, the drink is actually absorbed directly into the blood stream through the lungs. But it was nice being able to taste the mead and the double apple tobacco. So for those of you out there with a hookah (not a bong. Marijuana is stupid.) put a little bit of your favorite wine or juice in the water. Yum.

just a little too slow

Mmm, double apple. I'm jealous.

For some reason, perhaps because I'm insane, I picture the gazebo as a giant mushroom and you as the caterpillar.
