My brother has decided to become a banker, which seems to me like a boring, unimaginative, and pedestrian career. He has always been artistic, so I imagined his becoming a painter or a sculptor, rather than working a pedestrian, nine-to-five, everyday job. I think he wanted the financial security that is more easily attained through pedestrian, commonplace, run-of-the-mill work.
Quiz: When is something considered pedestrian?
- When it is ordinary and blah.
- When most people do it or believe in it.
- When it goes against expectations.
