21 word challenge 15-21

My sentences for last week in the 21 word challenge.

8. Prodigious
Mozart showed a prodigious talent from an early age. He was already a proficient player of the violin and the piano when he started to compose pieces aged five.

9. Insipid
The man looked in disgust at the insipid bowl of liquid the waiter had put before him insisting that it was the consommé the customer had ordered. There was no pleasing aroma rising nor any flavour when the man tasted it. It looked like dishwater and judging by the soapy taste left in his mouth the food critic thought it probably was dishwater.

10. Unpalatable
Geraint Thomas’s book, How a Welshman won the Tour de France, describes some of the more unpalatable issues of long distance cycling including what happens to your insides when you’re living on protein gels.

11. Resonance
I find the percussive resonance of a drumkit, especially from the snare drum, difficult to listen to. It is something to do with the frequency of the sound and my tinnitus.

12. Inaudible
The voices of so many women have not been heard and now not only are those voices inaudible but they are being cancelled.

13. Camouflage
In the Where’s Wally puzzle books, rather than wearing a traditional camouflage outfit, Wally is actually hiding in plain sight.

14. Clenched
At the 1968 Olympic Games Tommie Smith and John Carlos won gold and silver in the 200m final. At the medal ceremony they shared a pair of black gloves. Each raised a clenched black-gloved fist as a protest to highlight racism and prejudice against African-Americans in the U.S.A.

And now!
