We are talking about nobody other than the Lady in White!
She is impossible to miss. Even on the hottest of days she is dressed head to toe in white. She always has on a full white hood, a white dress, white pants, white socks, white gloves, white shoes and even white rimmed sunglasses. Her walk is reminiscent of Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon.
Who is she? Why does she dress in white?
Nobody has asked her. She travels slowly and emits an air of passivity. To everyone’s knowledge she has never bothered anybody and almost seems like she wants to be left alone. Why else shield every inch of your skin from sunlight?
Many far flung theories exist.
- She’s afraid of open spaces.
- She’s allergic to the sun.
- She is a burn victim.
- She has a mental condition.
We have even heard some ridiculous ones such as.
- She is black and wants to be white.
- She is Osama Bin Laden
The Lady in White also now has a Lady in White Facebook group with over 2,000 members.
Do not disturb this nice woman. Think of her a special ambassador of Allentown. Take a picture if you like. I for one don’t want the mystery ruined.
