This morning, I woke up to what seemed like a million retweets from One Direction fan accounts on my twitter feed.
At first, I thought I was being spammed. But, I quickly realized it was former Notre Dame swimmer Emma Reaney who was responsible for the retweets.
Not only was she retweeting a bunch of tweets about 1D but she was actually MENTIONED in these tweets.
Turns out, Emma went to a One Direction concert last night dressed up as a caterpillar.
What? Yeah, I know. It sounds odd and sweaty but what happened next was awesome.
At some point, Emma decided to throw her caterpillar costume on stage. Band member and British heartthrob Liam Payne then decided to put the costume on and perform the rest of the night in the caterpillar suit.
He was even still wearing the suit when he left the concert.
So, not only is Emma Reaney a national champion, a Notre Dame record holder and an American record holder, she is now also "the girl whose caterpillar costume Liam wore on stage."
1D fans everywhere loved it. And so did we.
Emma, we miss you here at Notre Dame but we're glad you're having fun in the "real world"!
And if for some reason you don't know who Emma Reaney is, watch this video about her. It made me cry.
