I was coordinating something with two Marines who work nearby. After our conversation, they offered me an Orange Fanta. Such luxuries being relatively infrequent, I thanked them and took it. We all had to be somewhere else in the same general direction, so we started walking together.
It came up in conversation that Orange Fanta is the pope's favorite drink. One of the guys was incredulous. I told him, "Seriously! I've seen pictures and videos of him at a very nice dinner. They're all drinking wine, but he's drinking Orange Fanta!"
This Marine, who's about my age, was taken aback. He got really introspective, and a minute later said, "You know what, that guy must be really humble. He's one of the most influential men in the world, and there he is among the refined where certain habits are expected, but he's just a tad pedestrian because that's who he is, and he keeps it that way"
Okay, so the Marine didn't use the word pedestrian, but that's what he meant.
The whole thing reminds me of Pope Pius X. He often got sneered at because of his having grown up in poverty. To many he was 'pedestrian.' He was also one of the greatest Popes of the 20th Century.
