Sometimes I use the term “vanilla“. I thought that providing a definition would be a good idea, just so you’re all clear on how I’m using it.

adjective, noun (pl. -s)
A descriptive term referring to what are generally considered the normal, usual, commonplace or mainstream qualities of objects, people or practices, for the purpose of distinguishing them from those which are considered more alternative, exceptional, special or different.

From the mid 17th century Spanish vainilla meaning little pod, diminutive of the Spanish vain(a) derived from the Latin vagina meaning sheath + -illa the diminutive suffix.
