Translation of Tontería

Nos enfadamos por una tontería.We got angry at each other over (because of) a trifle.
At first when I saw Trifle in the translation I thought of a pudding (postre). Ha ha. I don’t think trifle is the correct word to use for the translation of tontería in this example. Perhaps use ‘something trivial / trivial thing’
