Accidental neologism

Alice was telling a story about some other people and at one point fumbled between saying "master" and "ma'am" in reference to one of the characters in the story, and what came out sounded like "mas'm" or "massem". I think this could be an excellent word for a gender neutral or genderqueer parallel to "master" and "ma'am"!
