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).

Pronunciation: shot - spot

Sentence: Ernie could not get through the day without a shot or two of rum, vodka, gin, brandy, whisky or some alcoholic fix. Because he did not want anyone to know his weakness, he kept a secret place he called his shotspot where he kept the flavor of the day, along with his special shot glass.

Etymology: shot and spot; also play on "hotspot"


Great originality. Did you know that most hard liquor has so much sugar in its simplest form that a shot is a 100 calories! Sure puts alcohol in the sweet treat category. Shotspot is a tiptop create! - silveryaspen, 2009-03-18: 20:03:00

Pronunciation: smor gas hord

Sentence: Thor, being of Viking descent, had developed the habit of hiding olaf his food all around his home, so that he could eat or drink something wherever he was with little effort. He hid candies in his mail box; mead bottles in his toilet tank(Skol!); herring in his ottoman storage area; nuts in his sock drawer and potato chips in his computer desk. He called this food his smorgashoard, or so the saga goes. It seemed like a good idea until the insects and mice found his cache and overran his home. Now Thor is full of re-Norse and he will have to find other ways to be toastin' Odin, like pillaging his fridge and raiding his pantry.

Etymology: Smorgasbord (an assortment of foods served as a buffet meal) & Hoard (a secret store of valuables or money; save up as for future use)
