Katie Byrne: Crossing the threshold
How I got my groove back at the best nightclub in the world
It's very easy to get old. I'm not talking about the mechanism of physical ageing - the oxidative stress, the telomere shortening or the small matter of gravity.
No, no, no - I'm talking about the behavioural changes that occur as we get older; the biases that chisel the character in the same way that wrinkles etch the face.
Curtailed spontaneity is the first grey hair. A night out requires considerable forward notice (even though you'll probably raincheck with a convoluted excuse about an upcoming wedding). Certain nightclubs are avoided for being "too young". French exits become the norm.
