A few weeks ago, I was awakened from a dead sleep at 3 am by a sudden, constant noise. I got out of bed and followed the noise into the hallway, where I found it was coming from the bathroom.
It was the blow dryer. The blow dryer had suddenly switched on as I slept. I picked it up, stared at it, and switched it off.
I stumbled into Gary's room where I droned loudly, "Blow dryer turned on. I turned it off. Going back to bed now."
"The blow dryer turned itself on and I shut it off."
"Go to sleep. You're raving."
I thought about the blow dryer the next morning, and I wondered if it had been a dream. Because, you know sometimes I get up in the middle of the night to let my dog out and then he magically becomes two dogs, or a dog relieves himself ten times and I wake up the next morning to wads of toilet paper through the house. They do say it's the brain stem that keeps you immobile when you sleep. Call Oliver Sacks!
At any rate, I checked the blow dryer and thought, "Well, it must have turned it off. Here it is in the off position. Wait ... that proves nothing."
So. Does anyone know of anything that could turn a blow dryer on in the dead of night?
