Saying I didn't call console.error when I did. Help

I am wondering why it is saying I didn't call console.error in my code when I did. Can anyone tell me what I am missing?

app.js
const https = require("https");

const request = https.get("https://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json", response => {
  console.log(response.statusCode);
});

request.on('error', error => console.error('Problem with request ${error.message}'));

That's true, that's not the real error, I ran it with just error.message, not the string + error.message, and it passed. Just a fussy test.

Thank you, Dan! I went back through and I finally got it. This is a fussy test. Always annoying when things like this happen but I guess that is programming for yah. Thanks, again!
