I have done this as well, probably most of us have. A rock, a stick or a dead animal and all of a sudden we're farther out into the lane than we expected to.
I have also started wearing only my left hearing aid while riding. Hoping to better hear any cars coming up from behind.

Your friend sounds like he was a "friend" to just about anyone else on a bike. Very sorry jppe.
