My kids, they're like nine or ten years old right now so you give 'em responsibilities just to keep them up on things. It ain't just all about getting on the skateboard or putting your Heelys on, and swimming in the pool all the time. You gotta do stuff like wash dishes, take the trash out, feed the dog.

WHAT DOES HEELYS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Heelys

Heelys

Heelys is a brand of roller shoe that have one or more wheels embedded in each sole, similar to inline skates. Thus, the wearer can walk, run, or, by shifting their weight to their heels, roll. Braking can be achieved by lowering the back of the foot so that sole contacts the ground. Generally, "Heeling" is a form of skating, and as such may not be allowed in some places, including schools, some amusement parks, stores and zoos. In February 2007, Yeovil Town Council were the first English council to ban their use. Roger Adams patented Heelys in late 2000.
