Before the birth of his twin daughters Melbourne comedian Ben Pobjie thought having girls would be easier than having boys:
When I had no children, I had thought that having girls would be easier than having boys, but when my twin girls came along, the real world hit me like a freight train. The girls are nearly eight now, and I don’t look like running out of things to worry about any time soon.
Pobjie need not worry; his girls are big winners in the genetic lottery:
I know my daughters. They are bright, quick-witted, funny as hell, and frequently entirely infuriating.
They got “infuriating” from daddy.
