    Hookahposted 10 years ago

    I've always loved Alice in Wonderland, the Caterpillar in particular and he's always seen in some of the illustrations with a Hookah in his hands so in a way I have always symbolized the Hookah to the ornery Caterpillar.

    What about yours? Where does your come from?

        Love you cosette, and your presence on HubPages, but Les Mis is probably my least favorite show I've seen, and I've seen a fair few.  At our house we refer to it as More Miserable.  Dude it was a loaf of bread.  Get a life.

        Les Mis and Phantom are usually bonus before/after season performances to "The Broadway Series" that tour to places like St Louis, San Antonio etc.  They'll feature them every 3 to 5 years or so, and sometimes run as long as a month, especially Phantom.
