As I have written these Touch of Glass articles over time, my wife has occasionally peeked over my shoulder and commented on pieces that she liked. Our tastes are not always the same, which makes for a fun relationship. This week, I thoughts that different tastes should be celebrated, so I asked her to peruse the world of weed and glass with me to come up with a selection of her favorite pieces and quoted her on why she liked each one. The result is an article I like to call Touch of Glass: Lady’s Choice.
A rose by any other name
Well, it’s got a flower on it, that’s cute. I don’t know too much about smoking, but if it were a bottle I would think that the flower is really pretty. It kind of reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. It is kind of a twilight rose garden bong.
The house me and my brother grew up in was right next to my grandmothers. My brother would always want to get high and go to her house so she would feed him. She would always hug him and tell him how good he smelled. She would tell him he smelled like the roses in the garden, but it was really the weed on his clothes. I would just sit and laugh. That’s what this one reminds me of!
Oscar the flamingo
He’s unique. In a sea full of pink flamingoes, he is the only one that is purple. I love purple. Not only is he purple but you can smoke out of him! All he needs is a monacle, and a top hat… and a few tattoos. Oscar, yeah I think that’s a good name. I shall call him Oscar, and he shall be mine. And he shall be my Oscar.
Oh my f*cking god! Cupcakes! I love cupcakes! They are delicious… I wonder if you could make a pipe out of fondant icing? So yeah, to me they look really artistic, like a painting. This person probably makes cupcakes whenever they get high for a treat. Or edibles. Artist and pastry chef. I really like this one.
I don’t even know what to call this thing! It’s like a ‘Hail Gallaxhar, futuristic Mighty-Joe Bong spaceship’ looking thing. Take a few hits of that and go space cruising.
I had to actually look it up for our benefit. This piece is called “Frequency Converter” by Gordman X 4 Point.
Bongs and pipes are usually phallic in nature, but then somebody goes and makes one that looks like one of those pleasure-beaded crystal rabbits that rotate when you… I mean they usually have a rabbit or a dolphin or a butterfly, but it looks way too similar. It’s hilarious! If I’m the only one who thinks this looks like a vibrator, let me know. I can pull up a picture so we can do a comparison.
Then she actually Googled vibrators on my phone and showed me. Now I can’t get the image out of my head. She was right. Now she refers to this one as the “Slam Piece”.
Does your spouse rename your smoking pieces, among other things? Are they your best friend and a source of constant laughs when you are high? Or do you have to avoid them when you are lighting up because they don’t like it? Share your laughs and frustrations on social media or in the comments below.
