We finally get to see the potted palm I built for #880, but that got cropped out of the final images. It's on a different continent, and in a different decade, but it's pretty much the same palm.

2014-12-08 Rerun commentary: And in case it isn't entirely clear, she's concealed behind the palm.

I have a potted palm in my home. I bought it soon after my wife and I moved in here, not long after we got married. It too got cropped recently, when my wife had a sudden housecleaning rampage. In trying to tame its foliage she got rid of about 90% of it. I was a bit shocked when I arrived home and saw it. She said she got a bit carried away, and hoped she hadn't killed it!

It is now recovering well and still growing.
