Today’s idiom: “Knight in Shining Armour”

10 Jul

A “knight in shining armour” is someone who rescues you from a difficult situation. It is used mostly in a romantic context, for example “She’s waiting for a knight in shining armour to rescue her from her boring and lonely life”. However, it can be used in any situation where someone is hoping for a rescuer to come along. For example, “Our business is in big trouble. We really need a knight in shining armour to come and invest a few million dollars in us.”
