Homer has to get up at an unreasonably early time in the morning to take #1 to work, so early in fact that I am not sure it really exists. Initially he set my alarm to this hour. It went off, I woke him and reset the alarm and theory has it went back to sleep.
Of course lying there for half an hour making sure he had got out of bed, and having to put on the light to reset the alarm was not working well for me. In fact it was working so badly for me that on several occasions I slept through the alarm, or turned it off in my sleep.
I persuaded him to use his phone as an alarm, it does after all have an alarm feature. This works well for me, except for the fact that the tune that he uses was at one point one of my favourites.
It goes like this, " All around my hat I will wear the green willow, and all around my hat for one year and a day, and if anyone should ask me the reason why I'm wearing it, it's all for my....punching noise." The original doesn't have the punching noise, that is my addition.
