: : Girl makes a trick on a guy and get's him to bed with her. Later she confesses:

: : I micked him. Stryctotoxy

: : What is "micked" and "Stryctotoxy", I couldn't find these words from my dictionary. I guess "to mick" should mean something like "to drug" and stryctotoxy should be some kind of drug/poison?

Are these the same girls that were talking about the double con? They are two vicious little vixens, with an alarmingly large vocabulary in the criminal area. I would guess that when she "micked him" she slipped him a Mickey, or Mickey Finn, that is, either a strong purgative or "knockout drops," of which chloral hydrate is the usual choice (or was). As for stryctotoxy, one thinks immediately of strychnine poisoning--except that the spelling is wrong for that. And why would she wish to administer both a Mickey and strychnine? SS
