Leon, that reminded me of a quote from one of my favorite movies, Bull Durham:

Annie Savoy: I think probably with my love of four-legged creatures and hooves and everything, that in another lifetime I was probably Catherine the Great, or Francis of Assisi. I'm not sure which one. What do you think?

Crash Davis: How come in former lifetimes, everybody is someone famous?

[Annie and Crash pause, then both laugh]

Crash Davis: I mean,

[still laughing]

Crash Davis: how come nobody ever says they were Joe Schmo?

Annie Savoy: [still laughing] Because it doesn't work that way, you fool!
