I found this in the corner of the living room. I remember my mom bought it for my aunt. This dear readers, is a Sheesha Pipe/hookah. It  is a single or multi-stemmed (often glass-based) instrument for smoking in which the smoke is cooled and filtered by passing through water. (Morris) 

It reminds me so much of Bahrain. I remember that Persian restau in the food court of Bahrain Mall near KFC. Their tables came with sheesha and smoking it is like a family thing.

I miss going to Geant on Thursdays (?) with Diana. Tito Medel and Mama Mina would call me around 10-11 and I would get ready and we would pick up Diana in school. She would change in the car and when she got older she'd change in the restrooms instead. We'd tag along going grocery shopping and we'd split up with them to go get Diana her weekly Archie comics and then I'd take her with me to the candy section and buy my Fruit By The Foot/Gushers/Roll Ups. Later on my mom would be there along with their other friends and when Cye's not lazy, she'd be there too.

Those were the days :)
