Man ln Hole
But it needn't be about a man and it needn't be about someone getting into a hole

Start a little above average, why get a depressing person? ---------------> Somebody gets into trouble -----> gets out of it ------------------> People love that story! They never get sick of it!


Boy gets Girl
but it needn't be that, just a way to remember it

Start on an average day, average person, not expect anything to happen, a day like any other. --------------------> Finds something wonderful! --> Just loves it! ---> Oh goddam it! ---> Got it back again ---> People like that..
