I had to do the math in my head just now, simply to convince myself that you could have been waited on by a barista for whom being a reincarnated Jim Henson was even a possibility. In other words, a working-age person for whom Henson has always been dead.

just once i would like to hear somebody discuss a past life where they weren't something special, like saying,

"yeah, in my past life i was a janitor in a victorian workhouse."


"in my past life i was a stupid fucking peasant who never did anything of consequence."

nope, they are always bigtime deals.


One of the funniest scenes in the Albert Brooks' movie "Defending Your Life" is the Past Lives Pavilion. Meryl Streep has lived as all these dramatic figures...Joan of Arc, for example. Brooks' is an African tribesman running from a hungry lion.
