Too big ???

Naw !!!

Tis a bit tight I grant, but it fits.

This remiinds me of a story the woman who used to be in charge of Stonehenge told me. One of the staff was off sick so she had to pop up to Old Sarum and put the A boards away as light fell. An elderly American got out of his car and said he recalled her from his last visit some twenty years before. They were chatting and she in the end had to insist that she continued to put things away or she would never get home. He looked astonished, and said "you mean you pack up every night ?"

"Oh yes said the woman or nower days it would be stolen"

"Amaxzing" said the old man and sloped off.

It was only on returning to her car she recalled that he only could have seen her before at Stonehenge, and he obviously thought that is where he was and she was putting the stones away for the night !
