Scrappetite

Created by: lumina

Pronunciation: scrap/e/tite

Sentence: Louis wondered how he was ever going to be in good enough shape to join the guys in their first "Bros to the Finishline Marathon." His mother first painted that picture of starving children in Africa who would do anything to eat his brussel sprouts for breakfast, lunch AND dinner when he was about three years old. Since then, he has had a very unhealthy scrappetite and cannot leave a single crumb on his plate. While his buddies cross the finish line, he will be on the sidelines tossing them cups of water, proud of the fact that it is due to his "inner humanitarian" that he can't join them on this one.

Etymology: Scrap + Appetite
