Time wounds all heels
What does it mean?
It's a joke- we say that 'time heals all wounds', so they changed it about. I must say it's not a very funny joke, though.
am I right by these:
wounds = hurts
heels = feet (or part of feet.
So, the meaning of "Time wounds all heels" just mean your feet will get hurt as time passes by...

"Time wounds all heels"
Yes, wounds= hurts
Heels is a slang expression for someone who is a jerk, usually a male. It's not uncommon for a woman (or her friends) whose heart is broken to make this statement.
Basically the phrase is another way of saying "What goes around, comes around".......in other words....
...in time, the *heel* (jerk) will get hurt by his actions.
Hope this makes sense! :D
Guys, especially Susie
thank you so much!
I have been Googling crazily for answer since I have to translate it for somebody else. This was driving me nuts. Now I can calm down
Thank you all!
I meant the changed version and not the original.
