A "friend" on the boundary of your social space.

Instead of interrupting the flow of a story with superfluous noise by giving unnecessary context about a person in said story, they can be described as a periphery friend.
Scenario one-

Storyteller: my friend's mum's cousin's son's aunt's dog's dad's wife's godfather's cat's ........'s friend did funny story.

You: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Scenario two-

Storyteller: my periphery friend did funny story.

You: hahahaha, I'm glad you didn't fill that sentence with unnecessary context.
