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."
"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
- Yes, and "he's braided a whip 'for/against' himself."
Now they want him to help them all the time.
