Noun: a friend who is usually only called upon by a friend when a more primary/prominent friend is unavailable.

Taken from the term β€œsecond string” in an athletic competition situation. In football, if the star quarterback gets injured during a play, the second string is called off the bench to replace him/her. A β€œSecond String Friend” is essentially benched until needed, if ever.

Synonyms: Plan B, Second Choice, Secondary Friend, Benched Until Needed
I got a call from X the other night. She had an extra ticket to a concert she bought for a friend, but they couldn’t make it so she called me to ask if I wanted to go because I am her Second String Friend.

People that slow down when they see an accident in the road just to see what's going on often causing the people behind them to blare their horn at them to move on down the road!

Happens a lot of times on the Interstates and the speed limit is 60-70wpm!
Everytime we head up to Interstate 40 there is a accident on our side of the road and a Gaper's Block is sure to be seen!

When an anal queen and experienced gaper can't seem to relax and let her butthole dilate.
Man it was a long day at work today. Dana was having gaper's block for some reason. It took nearly the entire shoot for her to finally gape.
