I picked it up to hear Daniel say, "389." I said, "What did Jesse eat? Didn't the Navigator alarm? What's wrong?" I'm kind of panicky. Daniel laughed and said, "Ma, what are you talking about?" I said, "A blood sugar of 389 is nothing to laugh about!" My brilliant son said, "Ma, I don't know what you're talking about. But Dad just filled up your gas tank at $3.89 a gallon."
