I can't use a hard surface (table) because the angle of it cuts into my wrist and the only comfortable position my thigh.
There are two ways to "click" with a Magic Trackpad (just like with a laptop trackpad):

- tap to click
- physical click

You certainly could do the "tap to click" with the Magic Trackpad on your thigh...but what you mentioned about the Magic Trackpad needing a hard-flat surface for doing physical clicks is true. There are two little "nub-like" feet on the bottom front edge (nearest to the user) that need a hard flat surface to actuate properly. A soft-rounded surface like a human thigh will not work well for this.
