An ABC reporter covering the Southern California wildfires this morning asked one middle-aged couple evacuated from their home, "How much notice did you have to evacuate your home?"
"About a half hour, I guess." the woman replied.
"What did you decide to take with you?"
"The bean dip," she said in all seriousness.
Startled, the reporter paused and then asked, "Why bean dip?"
She laughed, "I didn't want to waste it."
Not often you can stun a reporter into stammering, awkward silence, but she did.
She added, "Then I took my Bible."
You just can't make this stuff up.
