In the 18th episode of Chuck: Season 4, Sarah becomes concerned that Casey’s new and extremely efficient team could end up replacing her and Chuck, both in her friend’s life and in the work place. Of course, Chuck knows he’s completely irreplaceable. Even if they put the Intersect into a thousand agents’ heads, he would always be THE Intersect, the one it was pretty much meant for, and the one who knows how to control it and use it best. For this part of the Word of Mouth project, Warner Brothers wants to know: Have you ever felt like you were in jeopardy of being replaced? Has there ever been a time where you have been made to feel outdated? If so, how did you remedy your situation? Did it end well?
I can’t really think of a time when I’ve been in jeopardy of being replaced, aside from when I was little and my best friend found a new friend. But in my adult life, I’ve really never faced this issue. Not that I’m completely irreplaceable, but mostly because I’ve never really worked in competitive fields until I started writing. I have to admit though, I am starting to feel a little outdated. I didn’t even embrace Twitter until just a few months ago, and I refuse to use that weird text speak that is becoming so common these days. As I get older, I suppose I have a harder time keeping up with the trends. Having a blog helps me keep up with social networking, since it’s such a vital part of the whole process of getting traffic. Being a mom helps me keep up with new trends in toys and other stuff that is “cool” in the world of grade-school kids. So I don’t think I’m doing too bad a job at staying current!
