    You have a compound subject linked by an "and" so use the plural verb.

    Ana and a friend wish or Ana and 1200 friends wish - it doesn't matter how many more friends there are as long as you have an "and" compound subject.

    {not a teacher}

    That is so weird - there was no reply when I started typing mine. I'm pretty sure I didn't take an hour to type and hit post. Sorry for the redundancy.
