The orange curve I plotted is a normal distribution with the the same ##\mu## and ##\sigma## as the discrete samples (the blue spots) for my Wordle games. I'm not claiming the orange curve represents my Wordle history, it just happens to have the same ##\mu## and ##\sigma##.

It's just for comparison, and as you point out, the comparison may not be all that useful.
