I get asked this question way too often. Sometimes, it gets bloody annoying. Other responses to the "Why/How did you get so tall" question include:

"When I was seven, it was on my Christmas list to Santa."
"Cyanide, lots of cyanide makes you tall. You should try it."
"Well, when I went to America, there was this nuclear accident, you see..."
"Because your mum uses this medieval stretching rack instead of a bed."
"I once did a bungee jump with the cord round my neck, you should give it a go."
"My great-grandfather was a telegraph pole."
"Well, I had a choice between the milk and the cookies..."
"Well, I had a choice between the red pill, and the blue pill..."
"I am The One."
"It's what happens to you if you survive a zombie bite."
"I was once fired out of a cannon, and I just shot straight up from there."

Any more suggestions?
