: : what does.....it sprouted wings and flew away mean? exactly what it means??? thanks for helping me with this.

: I don't quite see how there can be any doubt about this sentence. It, whatever it was, grew a set of wings, and with these wings flew away. It used its newly grown wings to leave wherever it was by flying. SS

The phrase is uttered by someone who needs to make a point.

My wife to me after I couldn't see the mess she was asking me to help her with:
"You wouldn't recognize garbage if it sprouted wings and flew into your face!"
