Normal is characterized by that which is usual, typical, or routine.

He was commuting to the office. Today he stays and works from home or anywhere in the world, you call home.

Why is it called normal?

Normal came to English around the 17th century, from the Latin normalize, which means “made according to a carpenter’s square, forming a right angle.”

What is a normal person?
