Sock buying vocabulary intact

Beijin, China

Though pleased that long haul trans-polar flights are not sweat inducing, the more fresh clothes I have, the better.  On the flight I had attempted to eavesdrop on two mandarin speakers and was perturbed that I couldn't even get the gist of their conversation.  On the streets of after dark Beijing I came upon a socks out of a box vendor.  I purchased 4 pair.  You'll be happy to know that my sock buying vocabulary is most satisfactory.  Yao wadzi ma.  They were obviously not discussing footware on the plane.  If you ever are in China and have a sock emergency I'm the translator for you!
