About 20 years ago I knew a guy named Nick who was a pro chef, and was working on opening his own restaurant. He was planning on calling it "Nick in Thyme". At least, that's what I heard when he first said it. So I immediately was imagining him swimming naked in a silo full of thyme. I considered this weird imagery for a restaurant.
I then communicated my misgivings, and what the name made me think of.
First, he said, "NO! Nick OF Thyme! 'In the nick of time?' Get it?"
Me: "Well, if you have to explain it like that, then it's probably not a very good name."
He hasn't spoken to me since.
Wasn't he the drummer for Primus?
