Storeo

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: sto ree o

Sentence: People who did not grow up in large families did not understand the need to stash away treats from competitive siblings. Treats were few and far between and therefore had to be locked away, guarded or secreted in unlikely places in order to savour when the coast was clear. The old man's pride and joy was his new fangled stereo, complete with 2 large speakers. These speakers today are minute, but in the good old days, they were large, rectangular boxes, big enough to be pieces of furniture themselves. They were open at the back and the space behind them was large enough to store treats that were squirreled away until later, unseen from casual observation at the front of the unit. Hence, the stereo became the storeo. Hi-Fi actually stood for Hide & Find, not High Fidelity. You waited and watched to see which sibling paid unreasonable attention to an inanimate object, like a speaker box, and then you knew where his cache of goodies lay. It was psychologically impossible for him not to keep checking on the loot guiltily. When he was in the bathroom or outside playing, you then helped yourself to his treats. Of course, you had him, because he could not complain to the folks, or the old man would have his hide for putting his sound system at risk with melty treats, like oreo cookies. It was a perfect arrangement and it was true, the forbidden fruit always tasted sweeter!

Etymology: Stereo (reproducer in which two microphones feed two or more loudspeakers to give a three-dimensional effect to the sound ) & Store (to save;a supply of something available for future use) & Stow (stash something away) & Oreo (the famous choclate cookie with a white cream filling).
