Wikipedia: Lactose intolerance
Lactose intolerance is the inability of adults and children to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk and to a lesser extent dairy products, causing side effects. It is due to a lactase deficiency, or hypolactasia. In some (rare) cases, individuals have congenital alactasia, a total absence of lactase caused by a genetic defect, which prevents them from being able to digest lactose from infancy.

Lack toast and intolerant.
If you wake up in a bad mood, don’t get breakfast soon enough and are generally a complete pain, you can be described as ‘lack toast and intolerant’; if your body cannot break down lactose (the main sugar found in milk) you are lactose intolerant. I’m ‘lack toast and tolerant’ unfortunately.

I think my favorite is “lack toast and tolerant,” a dietary problem that makes lactose intolerance seem like a pleasant alternative to a barren, toastless existence.

Had my young son in for some medical tests.  When the diagnosis came, he texted his sister.  “I am lack toast and tolerant.” smile
