Monologue Mania Day # 324  by Janet S. Tiger   The First Time (female)  Jan. 2, 2015 
                  Note- this was originally started in May 2009, the male version is on Day # 325.  These two can be performed together, as a duo - very effective when the lines are said mostly separately, then joined for some of the lines, especially at the end.
