I'm not sure how I feel about this. Those of you who know me well, also know of my 25+ year crush on David Letterman. Yeah, I said it--over 25 years--I think that's more of a relationship than a mere crush. Smartass friends used to say I was Dave's stalker--you know, the nut who would call herself his "wife" and wander around his house without permission. Psssh.
So yeah. Dave's married now. His son, Harry was there. I see him as being very Opie Taylor in nature. (Probably because he looks just like Ron Howard did back then.) I'll bet he's got quite a little sarcastic way about him and has a terrific vocabulary.
So goddmann it. Dave's married. I mean, congratulations.
“On Thursday, at 3 PM, March 19, 2009 at the Teton County Courthouse in Choteau, Montana, I was married to Regina Lasko,” Letterman told the audience. “Regina and I began dating in February of 1986, and I said, ‘Well, things are going pretty good, let’s just see what happens in about ten years.’ I had avoided getting married pretty good for, like, 23 years, and I - honestly, whether this happened or not - I secretly felt that men who were married admired me… like I was the last of the real gunslingers, you know what I’m saying?”
Recalling his big day, Dave says things went a little haywire when he, Regina, and their young son Harry got in a pickup truck to go to the courthouse: “So now, we get ready to go and we’ve got to drive into the courthouse and it’s muddy, and we’re supposed to be there at 2, and it’s me, Regina and Harry in the truck, in the pickup truck… So we get two miles from the house and we get stuck in the mud – I mean, turn the truck over, stuck in the mud. So now we think, ‘Well, somebody will come– no, nobody comes along. Nobody comes along – it’s Thursday afternoon, who’s coming along, Zorro? No, nobody – so I get out of the truck and I walk two miles back to the house into a 50 mile an hour wind. It’s not Beverly Hills, it’s Montana, for God’s sakes.”
“And the whole way, I’m thinking, ‘See, smart ass, see, see, you try to get married, this is what happens. See, well, you’ve got nobody to blame but yourself. Could have happened any other day, but you wait now, see, this is what you get.’ So then we get in the car and Harry says, ‘Are we still going into town?’ and I said, ‘Yes, we are,’ and he gets very upset because mom had told him if I wasn’t back in an hour, the deal was off.”
It's a sad day, ladies.
