This story was in one of my old middle school literature textbooks. I starts with a girl who along with the rest of her society is all excited to meet the aliens who have just made contact. The aliens finally land and the girl remarks right at the end that the aliens are similar to her but they only have hair on their heads instead of all over (the aliens are us).

    i did read it, sorry can't remember the title. pretty sure it was a short story. in the same vain there is one where a worn out soldier recalls the war against the monstrous aliens (us) and one where the last pure human village kills off all mutant to preserve the geneticaly clean long tailed humain race. – Reed Jan 4 '17 at 16:58
  • This isn't it, but Isaac Asimov story "Youth" is very similar in some ways. – GaGrebel Feb 3 '17 at 6:56
