Superior Person's Tuesday!

Lapping, n. The act of privily dropping an object into your lap while seated at a table performing close-up magic. The author not infrequently performs lapping, quite unintentionally, with scrambled eggs - an entirely different effect.

Keep the napkins handy.

Each Tuesday, we’ll offer up a Superior Word for the edification of our Superior Readers, via the volumes of the inimitable Peter Bowler. You can purchase all or any of the four Superior Person’s Books of Words from the Godine website. Lapping  appears in the third.
