A. Elizabeth Bennett, no question
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. I have so many of these that my propensity for pet peeves might qualify as one of my greatest flaws: bad drivers, people who cut in line or who save places for their 20 closest friends, people who are rude to waiters, people who are just rude, people who unwrap candies during concerts...lots of candies...endless candies, people who aren't nice to their dogs (While I was rewriting, during weeks of torrential rain, there was a gorgeous, sad golden retriever abandoned on the hill behind my house. We couldn't lure her into our house, but our neighbors finally caught her and rescued her and love her madly. But I actually wanted to hunt down her former owners and drop them off somewhere in the rainy wilderness.), people who park in two parking spaces, and all forms of snootiness.
