    I like the play on the title. Jarring, indeed. The jars lead me to so many more questions!

    It is amazing how in only 33 words a scary story can be told so vividly. Well done.

    jarring truth gets me – which on-line dating service was he from?

    • chloeaevm August 10, 2013 at 4:20 pm #

      Hahaha. Actually, he can be found on multiple online dating platforms. Interestingly enough, no two of his profiles share the same identity information!

    I saw this as a first date gone horribly, horribly wrong. Thank goodness I’m married.

    Creepy awesomeness!

    AH! Creepy! My father-in-law is the king of corny jokes. His favorite is saying, “The door isn’t ajar. It’s a door.” Groan. But this piece reminds me more of the episode of Dexter I watched the other night. Creepy!! Thanks for linking up.

    Oooo, grisly and gruesome! I am trying not to picture it too closely. 🙂

      Ha, that’s probably the best course of action. Thanks for reading!
