sprintf overwrites the variable you sprintf into...
you can get around that by sprintf'ing the original variable into the
beginning of itself, like you did... but the original first line
    sprintf(buf, "You are %d years old.", GET_AGE(ch));
does not... thus overwriting everything in the 'buf' buffer...
change it to
    sprintf(buf, "%sYou are %d years old.", buf, GET_AGE(ch));
and it should work...
