      I was going to make a an oval and then make a triangle and overlap part of the oval. The thing is...it's hard to make that triangle. Is there an easy way to make a speech ballon that is resizable?

          Yes. In FWs 8 and the previous release, and maybe the one before that as
          well, there is a speech balloon Auto Shape.

          It is also very easy to create one without using the Auto Shape feature.

          Drag out a vector oval shape > with the pen tool draw a triangle on top of
          your oval > select both > Modify > Combine Paths > Union.
          You can then Fill with whatever colour you require and add a stroke if you
          want, and a Drop Shadow can add another dimension. Resize using the Scale
          Tool.
