    I ask:

    Really? I thought I got the prepositions totally wrong.

    Wouldn't this be better:

    I thought we had agreed to my particpation on/for July 2nd and July 16th.

    I don't just want to be understood. I'm trying to perfect my grammar.

    English is hard... Having a GED doesn't help. There might be something wrong with my memory.
