Jumbled Numbers

The sign hid itself unsuccessfully, like a small child playing hide and seek. I could see it near the edge of the parking lot. What was the purpose of the sign? With its jumble of overlapping, tilted and upside down numbers, it had an arrestingly graphic quality. That particular style of numerals is so associated in my mind with gas station signs, I am sure I detected a faint scent of Hi-Test Premium.
