Jesus Christ. Dude, if you didn’t want to buy her anything for Valentine’s Day, there’s other ways to go about that.
Note: Also, “mistaken for an intruder”? Not to point out the obvious here, but if a blonde model was breaking into my house, I’d slip the key under the door so she wouldn’t have to break a nail.
