    Встречусь ей...

    He's thinking about a memory (обратится в воспоминание) yet the rest is written in the future, why would you write about a memory in the future tense?
    thanks

    «Ох, эти ноздри! И месяца не пройдет, как вся моя алгебра пойдет к чёрту... Дырявин обратится в скучное, серое воспоминание... Встречусь ей, так она только ноздрями пошевелит и здравствуй не скажет. Спасибо хоть за то, что коляской не раздавит...»

    Встречусь, пошевелит, скажет, раздавит are all future.

    It won’t be a month when all that’s left of him in the memory of that beautiful girl will be a dull grey blob...Everything he is thinking about here will be happening in the future

    He's thinking about a memory (обратится в воспоминание)
    "Обратится" is in the future too, so he's not thinking about a memory.

    Instead of correcting the original post in the thread it could be more useful to write another one.

    That's exactly what it was - another one.

    Alex, I was addressing sperk
    His original post looked different.
