After all these years of having someone make calls for me, i can no longer operate a telephone, the former host of the "Late Show" says

When David Letterman ended his more than 33-year long career as a late-night show host on May 20, he may not know what kind of difficulties he will face after his retirement. But now he surely is. 

In a recent interview with his hometown newspaper “Indianapolis Monthly”, David Letterman went on to share his woes from retirement. The former host of “Late Show with David Letterman” admitted that he is finding it difficult to get used to the life as a “regular” person. He is even struggling to make his own phone calls.

“It’s stunning what you find out about yourself when everything you’ve done for 33 years changes,” Letterman told the newspaper. “It turns out, after all these years of having someone make my calls for me, I can no longer operate a telephone.” Luckily, the two assistants who used to make calls for him agreed to continue their job for awhile. 

When asked about what he will do about his hair and makeup after having professionals to manage these things for him for so many years, Letterman said. “I don’t know what to do with my hair. But I’ll never wear make up again, so that’s no problem.”

Letterman likes to go outside for fishing but when it comes to his favorite sports, he finds it better to stay at home and watch them on TV.

“I love fishing with my son. Any kind of trout fishing where you can stand in the river is just delightful,” When asked has he planning to attend more Indycar races in the future like he did in the last month, Letterman replied. “I should just say “Yes.” But as with a lot of sports, it really is better at home watching it on TV.”

It appeared that Letterman, who liked riding in the past, will avoid cycling in his later years. “I do on occasion. But as I get older, I’m starting to realize that I don’t want to be found dead in a ditch somewhere. I’ll leave cycling for younger men.”
