No doubt here, people: I'm not food savvy, could never be a gourmet. Give me bread in my cupboard and steak on my plate! Sushi sets me on edge - it's fish bait! Broil me two salmon instead. Indict me if you will for a recent faux pas. At the Indonesian restaurant I coughed up my rijstafel and sent a debris of rice to the floor. Aye, and you know they run a tight ship there! For all I've been through, I'd write me a column - but I'm not great with words, either. I'm rescued often by mnemonic aids for Worsecter, halfpenny, rendezvous and others. But one task I've almost completed: I'll finish it now.
Question: Why is it so noisy at Wimbledon? Answer: you can't play there without raising a racquet! ;)

Now ... what have I done? i.e. what is special about the paragraph above?

I'm gonna to color this:

So where are we analyzing up to inside the paragraph? Red? Red and green? Red, green and cyan? or all of your post (red, green, cyan, blue)?

First let me say Go Giants!

That done, it's the paragraph - red, green and cyan.

Have fun.

Not bad, and your answer fits the idea of my appending a question to complete the puzzle.
It's more detailed than that, tho.

If may be helpful for you to know that I tried to do what I did in as few sentences as I could.
And again, it happens at a finer than sentence level.

If you state what is special about the paragraph, "every letter" will appear in the description.
But it's not "every letter appears"; it's something else.

"This paragraph uses every letter of the alphabet in such a way that ... blah blah blah."
