Jul 26 Word of the Day
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

A cantankerous marsupial native to southeastern Australia, but has been sighted in northern Nevada and San Fransisco. Despite its legendary reputation, this creature is quite humble and kind in even the most hectic environments. It thrives in even the dusty and arid environments due to its innate ability to adapt. Often found among Darryls and Cheryls, one might say it is truly a "party animal"; they are excellent companions, and will go out of their way to spread love and joy to those who truly need it. Highly intelligent, and quite cunning, it is capable of sniffing out a good time in even the most mundane setting. Most people don't realize they need a Walla in their lives until they encounter one in the wild.
