My Name Is Darryl Felton, Dammit!

“EFFFFFFF EEEEEEEE EEELLLLLLLLL  TEEEEEEEEEEEEE  OOOOOOHHHHHHHHH ENNNNNNNNNN…. Felton.  Darryl Felton,” said Darryl Felton.

“Bolton?”

“No.  It’s Darryl Felton.  F – E- L as in Larry – T as in Thomas – O – N as in Nancy.”

“Selton?”

“Are you serious?   Okay, one more time. “F as in… Feed-the-cats-while-I’m-away.  E as in… Earth-Day-2006?  L as in Looking-at-porn-in-Starbucks….”

Everyone has a go-to sequence of first-letter word examples to spell their name on the phone.  I’ve been using T-as-in-Thomas ever since I was a kid, so if you’re looking for a new T-word, I highly recommend Thomas.  I’ve had great success with it through the years.  But occasionally, I struggle when spelling a word that’s not my name, and I come across an uncommon letter.  “R as in Rooster.  A as in Apple.  Y as in…. yentography??  Yellow!  Y as in yellow.”
