Officer Mrs. Bessler

I learned to spell my name phonetically, from listening to my mother on the phone.  She used to say, “B–as in Boy, E–as in Edward, Double-S–As in Sam, L-E-R.”  So, after hearing myself saying that for the millionth time today, I decided to see where it comes from.  It turns out, my mom (Mrs. Lea Bessler), may have been an undercover cop.  If you notice, she is using the official NYPD phonetic alphabet–a dead giveaway.  She loved donuts, used the word “vehicle” instead of car.  She did have the most polished interrogation techniques out of all my friends’ moms–a technique involving bright lights (her makeup mirror), and a shower brush which was only brought out on special occasions and which she was always too afraid to use.
