Hanging out below your muffin top.
Creating friction and moisture for a minutiae of beast
Such as bacteria, fungus, and the opportunistic yeast.
I'm not talking about something worn when serving a patron
I'm talking about the voluminous reach of a skin fold lap apron.
For many aged* it's from caloric expansion with tonicity lost
For others the result of surgery/dieting with rapid weight loss.
Whatever the cause of your lap apron may be
Hygiene is important, keep it dry you see.
If your lap apron becomes a prohibitive part of your anatomy
Find a good surgeon who can perform a panniculectomy.
With a lap apron surgically and maybe permanently gone
We can begin to rip off the 30 Rock "Muffin Top" song.
*pronounced age-ed for the purpose of flow

Another great thing is a vaccine for cat dander/hair allergies currently in study. Just think if we can finally get a vaccine for cat allergies then we could adapt that vaccine for dog dander/hair, bird feathers, etc. The reign of pet allergies could be coming to an end in the next 5 years or so. I'm stoked! No more will I be unable to breathe and have to blow my nose a million times after my cat decided my pillow was an awesome sleeping place. No more will people have to shun goose down pillows and bedding. People won't have an excuse not to adopt pets from shelters because we will no longer be allergic to them. No more ads on Craig's list that we need to rehome a dog/cat because the child is allergic. A brave new world of pet ownership will prevail!
The future will be awesome!

To my keen sense of observation I am going with bowel obstruction. Looked at the rx and sure enough it was a laxative and pain med combo. The most likely reason: low fiber diet and not enough exercise or water.
Late one night a lady comes in with an emergency room rx for Fiorinal with codeine for migraines. When she checks out I just shake my head and wonder how long she has suffered. She buys 3 Hostess honey buns, 2 bags of Cheetos Puffs, 4 packs of salted sunflower seeds, and 2 Mountain Dews. It doesn't take a genius to see that she eats minimally nutritional things chock full of preservatives, color/flavor additives, and salt. All of these things can contribute to migraines.
She also had no previous history of any other medications except for Fiorinal with codeine to try and prevent migraine episodes so I made some suggestions to make her life easier but she didn't care because Medicaid will give her as many ER visits and Fiorinal with codeine as her little heart desires instead of her actually going to a physician and trying something daily to cut back on her discomfort.
Ugh, some people never learn...
