It's really not that bizarre. Everyone has a conception of a macroscopic wave and a macroscopic particle, and these two categories are generally mutually exclusive. Instead of trying to figure out how an object can be both, realize instead that the object is neither. Quantum mechanics is itself a complete description of nature. Yes, it *shares* some properties of wave physics and it *shares* some similarities with discrete mechanics, but isn't a subset of either. Everyday macroscopic experience just isn't applicable to the quantum mechanical world. Humans just don't have an intuitive understand of reality on that level, even though we can predict and quantify the effects.
