as good as it gets

A boy and a girl, twelve, maybe thirteen, at the pool playground, swing from the monkey bars playing “can you do this?”.
They meet each other’s challenges a few times, turn for turn. They hang from their knees for a few seconds and laugh at each other’s upside down hair. Then run off to the diving boards.
They start a new set of challenges.
I wonder how old they will be before they realize this is as good as it gets.
