Pronunciation: low d stow nd

Sentence: Carter knew how to bolster up for the Christmas gatheringy-dingdings. All it takes is a slew of morale boozeter shots. Everyone knows that a Carter is good at getting well-loaded, yet still delivering the goods. For parties, Carter was well sot after, perhaps because of his plastered smile, and smooth as Black Velvet tongue. He was a loadstoned attraction.

Etymology: LOADED, STONED, LODE STONE. Loaded and stoned are synonyms for being inebriated. Lode Stone not only means a magnetic rock, it is also any thing that attracts others.
