One of the most fun things about this crane challenge has been learning lots of new words. Although this one is definitely not new, appetence is new to me. (It also seems to be one the dictionary isn't aware of as I keep getting the red squiggly lines of failure...) Appetency appears to have come about in the early 17th century, and seems to die out a bit at the turn of the 20th century. I'm pretty sure I won't be able to work it into every day conversation without getting some looks, but I sure will try.
