Actually, Linda, the warning is not so weird. I bet you bought a
"blow-dryer" instead of the older type of hairdryers which came
complete with bonnets that people attached to the unit. The older type
of hairdryer was the subject of a number of letters to either Ann
Landers of Dear Abby (I read them both) a few years ago.
Apparently some people run the older hairdryers while they sleep
because they like the noise (sort of like a wind tunnel, I guess).
