The moment this woman got herself into a bit of a jam at ALDI one day, her “hero in shining armor” was the one who stepped in to get her out of it (after a phone call). And this is the information that she would want to impart to people who are seeking for that one unique person.

She remarked, “This is what your chivalrous knight in shining armor seems to look like when you are in your 40s.” She went on to explain what love is like between elderly people and how wonderful it is in this context.
