Your example doesn't fit.
Definition of meme:>an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture
So to accept something as a meme it needs to spread first. If someone is quietly sitting on an idea then it won't become a meme. And the "within a culture" part suggest the spreading on a wider scale. Maybe even at the first few transmission it shouldn't count as a meme.
Well, maybe if that particular culture is small enough like a subculture with only two members then even the first "infection" could give birth to a meme.
