Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Chocolate soufflé, but only if the whipped cream counts as part of the one thing. If not, a toss up between warm chocolate cake and ripe mangoes.

A. kindness, integrity, sense of humor (all right, so sense of humor is not up there with honesty or having a sterling character, but I really, really like it)
