Barack Obama and Dave Letterman on Monday's 'Late Show'

President Barack Obama joined David Letterman at the Ed Sullivan Theater on Monday for that night's airing of The Late Show, and while he was there, the two men — both on their way out of their respective offices — took a minute to talk retirement plans. 

In a preview of the show posted Monday afternoon, Letterman asks Obama what he'll do once 2017 rolls around, and he's not president any longer. 

"I was thinking you and me, we could play some dominoes together," Obama responded with a smile. "We can go to the local Starbucks and swap stories." 

Letterman also revealed that during the commercial break, the president told him he'd be taking a month off. 

"Are you kidding me? After eight years of this, you're only taking a month off?" Letterman said. 

Meanwhile, Letterman said he plans to teach law at Columbia. To which Obama responded: "I'd be interested to sit in on that class. I mean, that would be a hoot."

The two also shared some more earnest sentiments, thanking each other for the services they've provided to the American public and the personal kindness they have offered each other. 

The full episode of the Late Show will air Monday night at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS. Watch the preview video below.
