Safe Hookah Coal Extinguishing (or) Put Out That Light!!!

“The trashcan’s on fire again.” a coworker casually informed me, hardly looking up from his computer screen as the smell of burning paper wrestled with the lingering scent of shisha smoke in the small office. It was my fault, and from the nonplussed reaction, you may assume it wasn’t the first time. Moral of the [...]
