Most of this stanza is grammatically incorrect; I think a good checking over will ensure that your work reads a little better.

Well as a reader I would certainly say that a lot of it doesn't read very well. It'd do you well to pay attention to people's feedback if you want to improve. Also, 'generous,' 'whereupon' 'disinfectant'and 'remnants' are all misspelled.

How is my criticism not well placed? I found something that didn't work and I politely mentioned it. Every single other person on this site has been polite enough over time to respond well and acknowledge mistakes. You, on the other hand, have reacted rather quite immaturely. Go ahead, read my work. Enjoy.

She had a friend.

Hello people.
My name is joey smoke.
I am 35 years old , and as far back as i can remember i always knew that the only person or thing that i am truely and passionetly in love with is none other than myself .
Yes,me.
I love me .
Nothing strange there , at least as far as i am concerned. For after all i do possess all that is required and needed for me to feel the way i do.
Elaborating further on this fact i would have to explain to all why this is so. 1 comment


I  am good looking,handsome and beautiful. That i am. Dont take my word for it please, but this fact will be confirmed by all the girls i know, past, present and future; and i can not recall a single instance when this was not the case. I am to many a girl what is regarded  as a prize trophy, the ideal perfect man to be with, a stud,a hunk,a catch. Call it what you like but there is no escaping the fact that i am beautiful.


Style is prime among the many other abundent god given gifts, blessings and qualities that contribute to,compliment and cement my good looks and love of myself. Style i have. There aint a better dressed dude in the neighborhood nor beyond that can come anywhere close to match when its time for me to put on the mother of all wordrobe ensemble cladding my beautifully handsome well proportioned statue like torso.


Oppertunity came knocking on my door when i was handed a written invitation to attend a friends law school graduation ceremony, where some top notch folks from the legal profession would be attending as head hunters of star student graduates while they are still  cheap for the taking. Never one to miss a chance to show my style i became excited at the prospect.


Getting up early for the big day, i do the camel walk to the J.Brown i feel good tune as i strutt my way to the shower; whereapon i help myself to generouse Head and Shoulder dabs of shampoo and set apon my scalp in a 3 cycle of wash and rinse. Done with my head i next grab my large african loofa and with a Detol desinfectant bar of soap go to work scrubbing scrapping and grinding away the prior days accumulated remnents of dirt and grime for a Fairy Liquid squeeky clean shiny finish . Done with that,i naked, do the jackson moonwalk backwards as i enter my very large teak panelled wall to wall dressing room and survey the mix and match assortment that will live up to the occasion. 7 comments


Letting my fingers do the walking , i stop to pick out a chess board pink and orange checkered mohair slacks in the style of Bogart, hand made by the famed Italian menswear designer....Tutti. Taking a few steps back and one step forward and after a quick glance i settle for the maroon colored silk shirt made by the same; and finally a pair of pink colored socks to match my red Zimmas snake skin loafers . Still naked, i make a spin to the right, a spin to the left and a forward moonwalk lands me infront of th blazer section, grabbing in the process a blazer specially made for maximum shock and awe effect taking the form of a large sunflower print . Almost done now but not before hitting on the accessories department going for a mickey mouse print for the tie and a blue swatch to adorn my beautiful neck and wrist. All this was crowned with the ultimate Gucci shades and a maroon Portellinni hat .


Finally getting totally dressed now for the occasion i take a Gangnam style trot to the dressing table and help myself to a few squirts of Dior aftershave; looking at the floor to ceiling mirror i blow myself a kiss and go as far as hugging myself and kissing myself all over....god i am beautiful .


Arriving punctually at the graduation function, i was met at the front door by two very nasty looking black dudes who adamently refused my entry unless i showed them my invitation card,which i had absent mindedly  forgotten to bring with me. Taking me for some kind of joker and after some heated exchange,  both men fire at me a barrage of verbal insults and redicule .
A small crowd who were also waiting to be let in had gathered around us trying to break up the arguement before it developed into a full fledged fist fight. It is precisely at this moment that i joey smoke had to improvise and use my personel gifts of  charm and wit to gain entry thus doing the sinatra as i sing :


And now, the end is near,
And so i face the final
curtain.


My friend,ill say it
clear,
ill state my case,of
which i am certain.


I,ve lived a life thats
full
I,ve traveled each and every highway.


But more,much
more than this,
i did it my way


The small crowd outside had by now become a chorus and start singing along :
