Here’s an alarm clock technique that I read about somewhere. I’ve never tried it myself, though.
[li]Set alarm clock and lock it in a metal box next to the bed. For best results, use a really jangly alarm clock that rings for a long time.[/li][li]Put the key in a tall umbrella stand[/li][li]Place the umbrella stand as far away from the bedroom as possible. If there’s a flight of stairs or two involved, so much the better.[/li][li]Fill the umbrella stand with ice water.[/li][/list]
When the alarm clock goes off in the morning, it will be amplified by the metal box. To shut it off, you will have to get out of bed, go a great distance, stick your arm (up to the shoulder) in ice water, unlock the box and shut off the alarm clock.
If it were me, I’d be so tired by all this early-morning activity that I’d go back to bed. You’re welcome to try it, though.
Never attribute to malice anything that can be attributed to stupidity.
