Halloween means Mallen Streaks

Postby K. M. Kirby » Tue Oct 06, 2009 12:58 pm

Are there any traditional meanings for the Poliosis condition "Mallen Streak" in the ancient records, I wonder?

One of the lesser local creeps (in the residential where I'm apparently stuck,) a slouch who seems to specialize in blocking off the manager, developed a long, shocking streak of white hair almost overnight. It must be an omen for something, but for what?

Is this guy getting used as a human telescope by Nostradamus himself?

In less enlightened times, the sudden appearance of such white stripes must surely have caused some consternation.

In our times, it probably means the guy is stressed over being caught up with some guy's old lady. Maybe his secret history has just shown up at the sfpd website's "molester's database" but he just doesn't know it yet.

Do these Mallen Streak people have potential as human sacrifices, perhaps?
