A lot of people facing retirement are anxious about their next steps. David Letterman is not one of those people.

“I’ll tell you something, I can’t wait for it to happen,” Letterman told The Late Late Show guest host Regis Philbin of his impending departure from his own show. “Because I am sick and tired of people saying, ‘Well, what are you gonna do? What are you gonna do?’ I have no idea what I’m gonna do.” (Aside from hang out with fellow plan-less person Aubrey Plaza, that is.)

Letterman added that he’s never really planned anything so far in his life, and we’d have to say that things have turned out pretty well for him so far, so maybe now isn’t the best time to start.

Letterman’s final stint at the Late Show desk is May 20 (he’ll be 68 by then), after which – on Sept. 8 – Stephen Colbert will take over.
