A child was holding money tightly in his hand and was going to buy a spoon. He walked into a shop and looked at the large and small spoons displayed on the shelf, not being satisfied with the selection. The child then said to the boss, "I want a longer spoon." The boss took out a spoon half the length of a dining table, and the child shook his head. The boss took out another spoon almost as high as the door, and the child shook his head. The boss had to ask other people to help, and after pulling out a spoon as long as a flagpole, the child still shook his head. The boss couldn't help asking him, "What are you going to do with such a long spoon?" The child blinked, raised his head and pointed at the white clouds in the sky, and said loudly, "I want to scoop down the white clouds and take a bite."
