Bad wishes: wishes for something bad to happen? Poorly thought out wishes? Wishes that had bad consequences? Did she want to make Josh happy? Did she tell Josh her wishes? Did she want Josh to know her wishes?

Does Josh dislike Anna? Does he want her to wish him bad? Does he take the wishes as a sign of something? If so: a sign that she at least thinks about him? A sign that he has succeeded with something? that she has failed with something? That she's no danger to him?

Does he want her to dislike him?

I accidently moved your puzzle into Limbo. I've put it back into the active section now.

Sorry about that. On the plus side you're now at the bottom of the page so you should get lots of questions.

Did the referred-to romantic relationship involve Josh? The recipient? Both?

"Relation between Anna and Josh relevant? Yes."
- just that they're both members of the same company, and that Anna doesn't like Josh? Or more than this?

Anna expected her texting action to put Josh in an awkward position, eg get him fired or embarrass him?

But actually it turned out that Josh's feelings towards said colleague were indeed romantic and the feeling was mutual?

**********SPOILER************
Anna and Josh were coworkers in the same company. Anna wanted to get Josh fired. To get this, she texted all women in the company from Josh's mobile, writing something along the lines of: "I love you, I would like to date you". By chance, Josh fell in love in one of the texted women. As a result of Anna's action, it turned out that the feeling was mutual - Josh got a response, the couple finally met and lived long and happily ever after.


Thanks to all who played, especially Psymann for solving the puzzle.
