"The ideal American woman doesn't just putter around in the kitchen or dabble in knitting. She opens a cake shop and knits scarves for fashion shows. She appears on Oprah. She follows her dreams."

So French women don't get fat, and now Dutch women don't get depressed. What about American women?
A quick mental run-through brings me to conclude that I have always considered my own hobbies or skills as potential business situations,* even though I've never acted on these thoughts (it's really just a matter of time). Is this a result of my American upbringing? Is the entrepreneurial spirit born into every American?
*upon closer scrutiny, I think most of the entrepreneurial spirit comes from a desire to get out of the rat race, no? That would bring this little conversation full-circle. And now you know how my mind works. Lucky you! It gets pretty convoluted in there sometimes :)
