In brief: Unlikely
If exposed to the living weakened virus of a child who receiver the nasal mist, you might get a free vaccine experience.
You would not get the full blown disease.

In brief: No.
Flumist has a "cold-adapted" version of the virus - it cannot live at body temperature, multiplies only in the nose, and does not cause a deeper infection.
