Your reason for thinking it is odd is quite valid. I think certain people thought your comment suggested you believed the true presence was not entirely in the body alone and the blood alone, but required both to be received in order to have received the true presence.
It is really unusual to learn about church traditions that you were never aware of. I was raised going to a very charismatic mass, now I go to Latin mass and there are so many new and surprising things I learn. And then I come to find out that this is technically the old way, and the usual way. The stuff I was raised on is the new unusual stuff haha
