No Time for Thyme

I was preparing a chicken dish for dinner recently, but I was short one ingredient.

Laura: How’s dinner going?

Me: It’s ok. I’ve pulled everything I need from the cupboard, but I’m going to have to tweak the recipe the recipe a bit. We’re almost out of thyme.

Laura: Our guests won’t arrive until 6:30, can I go and pick something up at the store? Or we could just heat up a couple of frozen pizzas.

Me: You don’t want chicken?

Laura: Sure I do, but if you don’t have enough time to make it, I’m sure that everyone will be ok with something else.

Me: I think it’ll be ok. I’ll just use a little sage instead.

Laura: Sage won’t make it cook any faster.

Me: Right, but I think it’ll be an okay substitute for thyme.

She shoots me a skeptical look.

I finally see our confusion and hold up the empty spice rack jar.

Me: Thyme.
