Nope. What you are expecting in those instances is for a process that has not happened yet, to take place. When you are "expecting" someone or something to arrive, i.e. they are in route, then that someone or something must already exist. It's simple physics.<quoted text>Of course, one can expect what doesn't currently exist. When you plant a seed, you expect a plant, and then you expect that plant to flower. Do you call the seed a flower? Are they one and the same to you? You're silly.
