Yep, I see that he has some listed for Buy-It-Now at $10. Congrats on
getting one of those.

As for the Dutch Auction thing, I looked again and the reason I said it
was a Dutch Auction was that it says $9.00 and "5 available", which means
that the starting price for a single one is $9.00. When you bid on one
of these, you enter your bid amount (per item) and the quantity you want
to buy. So, you can buy one or more, up to the five that are available.

I think that's what's called a Dutch auction, but I might be wrong. They
were always confusing to me.

because he is too lazy to go get bifocals!)
