      Yes, responding from back _under_ the umbrella:

      Say, you've been asked for an interview and you were so great and
      gracious that now you're called on to do interviews "do aleluja."
      You say:

      "To som si na seba uplietla bic." [to = interjection, not "it"]

      It is generally used when you've shown your prowess at something and
      your "reward" is that people/your boss, etc., ask you rather than
      someone else to do it again.

      A: Peter pomohol susedom. - Peter helped his neighbors.

      B: Ano, a uplietol si na seba bic. Teraz chcu, aby im
      pomahal stale.
      - Yes, and "he's braided a whip 'for/against' himself."
      Now they want him to help them all the time.
